8 Weeks to a Better Brain
Learn the fundamentals of mindfulness and experience it for yourself
Sara Lazar and her team at Harvard discovered that in as little as 8 weeks, mindfulness practice can physically change the structure of the brain in areas that are responsible for stress, memory and executive functioning. Mindfulness programs have become a widely accepted tool for hospital and medical practices, corporations, schools and retirement communities throughout the United States. Research shows that these techniques decrease a wide spectrum of stress-related symptoms and medical conditions including slowing the aging process and producing an overall feeling of well-being.
