New Class: Better Brain Function through Meditation

Please note that the class has started, but there are a few drop-in spots available on a first come first serve basis each week. You must let me know ahead of time if you would like to join us for that week’s class. We will review the core meditation in full each week, so you will be able to participate. Drop in fee is $28.

Are you stressed?  Have you been feeling more forgetful?  Foggy?  Unfocused?  Overwhelmed?  Would you like to improve your memory, focus and attention, in just minutes a day, while getting all the well-documented benefits of meditation for both the body and the spirit? Then this 8 week meditation class is for you.

We will be learning and practicing a simple 12 minute meditation that has been shown to improve memory and executive function as well as mood, and to decrease tension and fatigue (research published in esteemed peer-reviewed journals).

In addition, I will be sharing many other tips about retaining and even improving brain function as we age.

The class is open to all, whether you have experience with meditation or not.  It is perfect for complete beginners, as well as experienced meditators.

This class will provide a structure and a safe forum to learn and develop a personal meditation practice.

Meditation can help to calm and reset a highly activated nervous system. The brain can get “set” in certain habitual grooves due to stress, but it can also be “unset” and “reset”. Meditation is a very effective and well researched way to do that.  Studies show it offers significant improvements in sleep, pain reduction, stress, use of prescription medications, lowers blood pressure, and gives people an improved sense of control.

More and more research is investigating and highlighting the numerous benefits of meditation.  People who are highly stressed, whether they have Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, anxiety, depression, or just general “overwhelm”, usually have accompanying symptoms such as loss of memory, attention and focus.  In a surprisingly short period of time, the right kind of meditation can improve all of these significantly.  The meditation I will teach in the class has been found in peer reviewed journals to improve these measures, as well as to repair cognitive function.

Classes will take place at my office, on 8 Wednesdays from 6-7PM, starting May 30th and ending July 25th (no class June 27th).  The cost for the class is $197.  Class is limited to 15 people.

I have been practicing and teaching meditation for about 15 years, but haven’t taught in the past couple of years, although I often get asked. This new-to-me practice inspired me so deeply that I knew I had to share it.

  • If you have ever felt that you would like to meditate, but don’t know how to start on your own, or want the structure of a class and teacher to develop and maintain a personal practice, then this is for you.

  • If you are concerned about the effects of stress or aging on memory, focus, attention and other measures of cognitive function, then this class is for you.

I hope you will join us.  Register now
