Dan was a featured speaker at the “Mindfulness for Caregivers Conference being held by the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation in Philadelphia on November 16, 2013. The conference runs from 8:30 AM to 5 PM at the DoubleTree Hotel in Center City.
It’s a very special conference for the amazing people who provide care for people living with paralysis and other mobility disabilities.
What is Mindfulness?
Mindfulness is a technique that helps practitioners pay precise, nonjudgmental attention to their thoughts. Instead of pushing away difficult experiences, they practice simply being with them. As a result, if something needs to be changed, mindfulness helps them to be present enough to understand what needs to be done. Research shows that even brief exposure to mindfulness training reduces stress, eases chronic pain, and improves well-being, enabling our Conference attendees to gather the tools they need to immediately improve their lives.
