My guest is Bob Stahl, Ph.D. who answers the question “What is mindfulness?” and discusses how mindfulness would help living better with Parkinson’s. As explained on his website [www.mindfulnessprograms.com]:
“Mindfulness is the practice of being aware of what’s happening in the present moment. Whenever you bring awareness to what you’re directly doing or experiencing in your body and mind, you’re being mindful.”
Dr. Stahl founded 7 Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction programs in medical centers throughout the San Francisco bay Area and currently directs programs at Dominican Hospital in Santa Cruz, El Camino Hospital in Mountain View and Los Gatos. He serves as a Senior Teacher for the Oasis Institute for Mindfulness-based Professional Education and Training. Dr. Stahl is a co-author of “A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook”, “Calming the Rush of Panic” “A Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction Workbook for Anxiety”, “Living with Your Heart Wide Open” and other marvelous books.
