THE ART & SCIENCE OF MINDFULNESS PART I - Shauna Shapiro, Ph.D.

*Footage from Awakening To Mindfulness - Seattle, Oct 2009 presented by FACES Conferences. Based on Dr. Shapiro's recent book, The Art and Science of Mindfulness: Integrating Mindfulness into Psychotherapy and the Helping Professions; this workshop offers scientific research and meditative practices for therapists interested in awakening the mind and opening the heart. Drawing on current research in psychology, medicine, and cognitive neuroscience, we will investigate the effects of mindfulness meditation on decreasing pathology and increasing positive psychological and physiological states. Further, we will explore the mechanisms of action through which mindfulness meditation has its transformative effects.
