“Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction & Meditation for Lawyers”

Lawyers have many more stressors than most people and can be overwhelmed with thoughts of real potential problems. This is a series of three Friday noon-hour classes where lawyers can learn all about mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) and meditation methods. These techniques have numerous evidence-based benefits. These include improved physical, emotional and mental well-being; improved concentration, clarity and focus. You will learn simple, practical meditation methods as well as cognitive strategies through the use of experiential exercises.

This class is facilitated by Susan Burak, J.D., M.A., R.C.C., who has been a practising lawyer for over twenty years and has extensive training in MBSR Techniques.
