The Women's Commission will host a presentation for SLU faculty, staff members and students about mindfulness meditation at noon on Tuesday, March 17, in Room 254, Busch Student Center.
Yoshiko Hall, Psy.D., of the University Counseling Center, will present. Hall has been teaching mindfulness meditation for nine years and developed the "Mind Body Lab" at the Baylor University Counseling Center, which uses biofeedback devices to teach students how to meditate.
Mindfulness meditation has been widely used to treat psychological and medical conditions such as stress, depression, anxiety, sleep, disordered eating and chronic pain.
The presentation discusses how the cultivation of mindfulness, or non-judgmental awareness of experiences in the present moment, produces beneficial effects on our physical and emotional well-being.
