What is mindfulness?

It’s the simple practice of being in the moment with equanimity and compassion.

What is meditation?

It’s the formal training or tool to practice mindfulness. Simply put, it’s the regular practice of sitting in silence, in contemplation, and exploring your inner world. In this program, we’ll explore a different meditation technique each week.

Why should I try this?

As lawyers, your mind is arguably your most important asset. Just as you can train the body for optimal performance, you can train your mind. Why not spend a few minutes everyday in silence to recharge and reset?

Read some of the research supporting the many benefits of mindfulness and meditation practices.
