Webinar: Benefits of Mindfulness Meditation

Wednesday, April 22nd, 2020
For the past 10 years, Ruchika Prakash has been studying the benefits of mindfulness techniques for older adults and those with chronic health conditions like multiple sclerosis. The results have been promising. With the COVID-19 pandemic upending people’s lives, Prakash, who is an associate professor of psychology at The Ohio State University, saw an opportunity to help more people learn mindfulness to deal with their stress. Prakash will offer a free, online 8-week webinar for the public on mindfulness meditation. The first weekly session begins Wednesday, April 22, at noon. Other sessions will follow each Wednesday at noon. Mindfulness meditation involves cultivating the practice of intentionally paying attention to the present moment in a nonjudgmental and accepting manner, Prakash said. "Right now, it is more relevant than ever. We’re all thinking about how this pandemic is going to unfold and about the future of our country and future of the world,” she said.
