"Ever 'tried meditation' and felt like a failure? Is meditation all that? There are so many instructors, gurus, and strident claims about meditation, that this course is your chance to put it all to the test. In her book, "Stress Less, Accomplish More, "Emily Fletcher explicitly details how to know if you are doing it 'right,' in order to benefit in concrete and measurable ways from her 15 minute 'Ziva' meditation technique. No incense, lotus positions or chanting required. Even though this book is geared for everyone from athletes and CEOs to new parents, there is no mention of seniors. We do know at least one senior, however, who experienced a remarkable benefit after only one day of practice. Does it work for everyone? Can you benefit as well? As we work our way through the book in six weeks, you may choose to practice at home to evaluate and share your findings. Expect a fun exploration.
