Mindfulness Meditation and Epigenetics - What’s the Connection and Latest Research?

COURSE

Course description

Meditation is said to be beneficial for many reasons, but how can it have these beneficial effects? In session 1 you will learn about the current research explaining the benefits of mindfulness and meditation for mental and physical health and wellbeing, as well as its impact on aging. You will learn some simple tools to help implement mindfulness into your life.

Can meditation alter the expression of our genes? Can meditation reduce burnout, and if so, is it through changes to the epigenetic profile in our genomes? Session 2 will help explain some of these questions. We will discuss the world of epigenetics, the research and current information available, as well as how mindfulness and meditation may influence our genomes through altering the chemical tags associated with the epigenetic mark.

Please note that the classes will be recorded, and recordings will be available to registrants for 30 days after the class.
