The Science of Mindfulness and Meditation

There will be a symposium on "The Science of Mindfulness and Meditation" that we have organized for the afternoon of Friday Nov 1st. It will feature talks by UO faculty Mike Posner and Heidemarie Laurent, grad student presentations, and an invited speaker, Sara Lazar from Harvard Med School, who has been a leader in the studies of effects of meditation on brain structure and function.

This will be a very exciting and interdisciplinary set of talks on a fascinating topic. Hope to see you there! Below is the schedule.
