Event description

Description

It is an exciting fact that people today are living longer healthier lives. Improvements in healthcare and an awareness of the importance of good diet and exercise has led to increased longevity.However, there is a down side to this...with increased longevity comes the risk of cognitive dysfunction in old age such as memory loss and impaired executive decision making skills. And sadly, degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer's disease and dementia are on the rise.
In my talk I will present some of the evidence from neuroscience studies which show how mindfulness and meditation play an important role in reversing the effects of ageing on the brain, potentially helping to prevent degenerative brain diseases in old age.

2 hr session - AED 200 on entry
