Five New Health Benefits of Meditation

6:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Walnut Creek Libraries - Ygnacio Valley
Meeting Room

Event Details

Research has proven the benefits of regular meditation in decreasing stress-related diseases, calming anxiety and emotional turmoil, and increasing survival rates in cancer and heart disease. Now, there is recent evidence that meditation can also slow the aging process itself; improve sleep; and lessen the pain of loss, grief, and depression.

Please join Marshall Zaslove, MD, board certified psychiatrist and 45-year meditator, for a fast-moving and entertaining discussion of these new benefits--and their place in improving your life. All attendees will be given a firsthand experience of instructed meditation, and there will also be a free drawing for a meditation DVD.
