Mindfulness in Daily Living with Lindsay Bridges, MD, Charlotte Center for Mindfulness
October 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
In our time together, we explore a bit of the science behind why mindfulness is such a helpful skill to cultivate and how it can lead to greater confidence, ease and sense of well-being right in the midst of life’s realities. We will then practice a few simple mindfulness skills that can be incorporated into daily life.
Lindsay became interested in mindfulness through her work as a Family Medicine physician where the link between healthy stress management and physical well-being was so clear. She trained extensively for teaching Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) through the University of Massachusetts Medical School Center for Mindfulness, the original MBSR center founded by Jon Kabat-Zinn, and has completed their Teacher Certification for MBSR . She has been teaching MBSR in a variety of hospital and health professional training centers since 2002, including work with youth and schools. She is also a Mindful Schools Certified teacher. Mindfulness and meditation practices are an integral part of her daily life.
