R806 Summer 2018 How to Take Control of Your Health and Wellness Through Mindfulness Practice
Monday, 9:40–11:05, July 23
One session
Instructor: Martha Brettschneider

Can practicing mindfulness improve your health and well being? Yes! Join us to learn how mindfulness practice—and meditation in particular—has been proven to reduce stress, improve health markers, ease sleep problems, and strengthen resiliency. Did you know, for example, that meditation increases density in the areas of the brain that control memory, attentiveness, and empathy, while shrinking areas that control anxiety and nervous tension? Come learn why this ancient practice has become mainstream and experience how to do it in an introduction to mindfulness meditation.
Martha Brettschneider, founder of Damselwings, LLC, provides coaching and artful inspirations for mindful living. Author, blogger, master gardener, and award-winning photographer, Martha cultivates mindfulness through creative channels and offers innovative programs that help people establish their own meditation habits. She tells her story in her book Blooming into Mindfulness: How the Universe Used a Garden, Cancer, and Carpools to Teach Me That Calm Is the New Happy.
