We earned a mention in #Mindfulness Matters' newsletter - thanks Lisa Pinsker! "For the seedlings in the garden of mindfulness to flourish, it is not a secret that consistency in practice is crucial. Yet maintaining consistency can be less than easy going... The Midwest Alliance for Mindfulness fulfills a need that our area mindfulness community has had for a long time. We can all use some support in living a life in mindful bloom." https://mailchi.mp/a5adcc59d143/spring-has-finally-sprung?e=d085207e07

A researcher is performing functional magnetic resonance imaging scans before and after #mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT). "...there are a handful of key areas — including depression, chronic pain, and anxiety — in which well-designed, well-run studies have shown benefits for patients engaging in a #mindfulness #meditation program, with effects similar to other existing treatments." https://news.harvard.edu/gazette/story/2018/04/harvard-researchers-study-how-mindfulness-may-change-the-brain-in-depressed-patients/


Study: "...participants in the meditation retreat showed improvements in attention as well as in general psychological well-being and ability to cope with stress... those gains in attention observed immediately after retreat were partly maintained seven years later, especially for older participants who maintained a more diligent meditation practice over the seven years. Compared to those who practiced less, these participants maintained cognitive gains and did not show typical patterns of age-related decline in sustained attention." https://www.ucdavis.edu/news/7-year-follow-shows-lasting-cognitive-gains-meditation
