Section Information for Fall 2016

A growing body of research literature points to the benefits of mindfulness and meditation for mental and physical health. Although these terms are closely related, they are not identical. Mindfulness practice is one of many approaches to meditation; and mindfulness is applicable not just to meditation techniques but to a wide variety of daily life activities as well. These techniques assist us in combating what Rick Hanson calls the Negativity Bias: human beings’ wiring for the fight or flight stress response. By using meditation, mindfulness, and other techniques, and by learning more about how to manage our stress responses, we increase our well-being and life satisfaction.
