The mission of the Stanford Center for Clinical Research (SCCR) includes offering educational resources, training, and support for investigators and research staff.  We have invited Clinical Associate Professor of Medicine, Dr. Angela Lumba-Brown, MD, to provide you with an overview of neuroscience of meditation. Meditation impacts focus and condition, as well as emotional regulation. An understanding of its science can support practice and integration into daily life, with benefits in the workplace. This discussion will focus on wellness among our research community by introducing this topic. Please bring something to write with and a snack to use in meditation.

At the conclusion of this class, you will be able to:

  • Review motivations for attending this discussion
  • Explore current science regarding meditations’ effects on the brain and body
  • Learn sensory meditation example
  • Improve integration of mindful and meditative practices into daily life

Attendance is open to all research staff.
