Even though our extra stressful lives have left many of us feeling overwhelmed and tired, there are things that we can do to help manage that stress and increase our resiliency. With your “brain health” in mind, Kent State University’s Healthy Communities Research Initiative and the Brain Health Research Institute invite you to participate in a special webinar on the evidence-based practice of Koru mindfulness and meditation. This webinar will be held on October 22 from 3-4 p.m. and will be presented by KSU’s very own Mary Ann Raghanti, Ph.D. and Melissa Celko. Together we will learn about the science of mindfulness and meditation (e.g. how does meditation affect the brain), learn how to use our breath to influence the nervous system, and engage in guided meditation.
