As Kristin Neff, PhD so aptly put it, “Science gives our thinking brain explanations for why we feel how we feel...” Fortunately for the science-minded, mindfulness has been studied now for over 40 years and has consistently demonstrated a number of positive outcomes for health and wellbeing. Join Tracy Ochester, PsyD and Erik Hulse for a two hour online workshop exploring the science behind the most robustly studied beneficial effects of mindfulness and compassion practices. Offered live online via Zoom, this class is meant for the general public, but two continuing education credits are available or KS & MO mental health professionals who attend.
