Today, meditation and mindfulness training is no longer a suspicious, touchy-feely subject. The scientific and medical evidence for the benefits of mindfulness practice continues to mount. Across the country lawyers and judges are receiving mindfulness training to improve mental acuity and combat the stresses of a challenging profession. In 2008, the MBA was a pioneer in this effort, offering a successful, daylong program on mindfulness training for 140 lawyers and judges. Since then many lawyers have participated in weekly mindfulness practice and have learned to incorporate new mental skills into their law practice. Our speakers are Michael Dwyer of Dwyer Mediation Center and John Folawn of Folawn Alterman & Richardson LLP. A panel of lawyers will speak about their meditation practice and experience and the impact on their professional lives.
In this seminar, you will learn:
- What is Meditation?
- Why Meditation is helpful to Lawyers
- Basic Instruction on Meditation
- How to Integrate Meditation into Your Law Practice and Daily Life
- The Medical and Scientific Support for Meditation
