Six Week Study of Meditation and Mindfulness 

FOUNTAIN HILLS — Everyone is talking about Mindfulness and Meditation but talk is cheap. It is nearly a radical act of civil disobedience these days to unplug, power down, and log-off for a period of time each day. And our collective techno-focus is to our collective detriment. We are all wildly distracted, more depressed than ever and our cognitive abilities are suffering mightily due in part to technology overload.

A 2012 study led by Harvard-affiliated researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital showed that participating in an eight-week mindfulness meditation program appears to make measurable changes in brain regions associated with memory, sense of self, empathy, and stress.  This was affirmed in a follow up study released in 2015 in which these same researchers found that long-term meditators have an increased amount of gray matter in the insula and sensory regions, the auditory and sensory cortex.

Join certified yoga instructor and trained meditation coach, Elizabeth Cabalka, for this six- session Mindfulness and Meditation program designed to provide an understanding of, and experience with, various forms of Mindfulness & Meditation.  This course is designed for all ages and you need not have any previous experience to participate.

During this six session program, participants will receive information about the profound physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of Mindfulness & Meditation. Perhaps more importantly, participants will experience various forms of Meditation and Mindfulness designed to support well-being in their daily life.

The course fee is $20 per person. No advance registration is necessary.
