45-Minute Presentation
Sustaining Positive Brain Change:
Building Community, Fostering Mentorship, and
Creating Enriched Environments to Deepen Mindfulness Practices

Elisha Goldstein, Ph.D.

Once a person understands the concept of Mindfulness, what’s next? Until recently there has been an absence of mentorship and support for those seeking community in their Mindfulness Practices. Creating communities that foster mentorship shifts mindfulness from a concept or fleeting experience to a whole new way of being for you and your clients. Please join us for a presentation on how building community and fostering mentorship creates enriched environments that help sustain positive brain change while allowing a deeper integration of mindfulness training and practice.

After this presentation, attendees will be able to:

  1. Describe the term Enriched Environment and its effect on mindfulness practice.
  2. List two studies that link Enriched Environments to positive brain change.
  3. Explain how Play supports memory and learning.
