Mindfulness Made Easy: Stress and Pain Management
3 sessions • 4.5 hours

Research establishes the positive effects of mindfulness practices on older adult’s (active aging) health and well-being. Can these benefits be obtained from shorter bouts of practice and encourage long-term adherence? Designed specifically for older adults, “Mindfulness Made Easy“ includes user-friendly mindfulness practices with an emphasis on stress and pain management that are all 10 minutes or less. Included in this three class format will be an introduction to mindfulness for stress and pain management and why it is the cornerstone of health and wellness. Learn what is mindfulness and what it is not through weaving the most current research with the pragmatic application to physical, intellectual, emotional, and spiritual well being.
