Counter the Stress Response in 90 Seconds. Learn, Practice, and Create Mini-Meditations – October


Course Code: MC91-fa22 Categories: , , Tag:


While a vast amount of research has proven the benefits of meditation, many misconceptions still surround the practice:  What exactly is the definition of meditation?  Do I really have to close my eyes and sit still for 15 minutes?  How long do I have to meditate to see any benefits?  It’s easier than you may think.

In this course, we’ll explore mini-meditations, an element of the Positivity and Relaxation Training (PART) program developed at the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.  Specifically, we’ll learn how to elicit the relaxation response to counteract the 90-second stress cycle, create mini-meditations that are tailored to your individual lifestyle, and explore research which demonstrates meditation can provide physical and psychological health benefits in 90 seconds or less.  By the end of class, you’ll have powerful stress reduction techniques to get you through rush hour traffic, focus on work, relax before bed, and any other time you need to destress!
