Mindful : February 2017
Research gathered from Greater Good Science Ctr. at UC Berkeley, Ctr. for Healthy Minds at U of Wisconsin-Madison, Ctr. for Mindfulness at UMass Medical School, and American Mindfulness Research Association. On-the-spot Help for Cancer Patients An innovative tech design studio that focuses on meditation-related apps—Mindfulness Every- where—launched a mobile meditation website for cancer patients called Kara. The site (thisiskara.com) was developed in partner- ship with the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center CancerCenter Integrative Oncology team. It’s free, easy to use, and filled with short meditation practices for common scenarios (such as “I’m angry” or “I feel alone”), resources to go deeper, and uplifting stories (users can also share their own stories). Busting the Cycle of Depression Mindfulness medita- tion seems well-suited for helping depressed people break out of an endless spiral of ruminat- ing over thoughts that drag them down. After all, a mindful stance can bring awareness to negative thoughts and feelings but allows you to “decenter” from them by regarding them as fleeting mental phenomena. There’s some concern, however, that a meditative focus may instead reinforce depres- sion during acute episodes that make it tough to disengage from nega- tive thinking. But a small study offers encouraging results to the contrary: Ana Costa and Thorsten Barnhofer of King’s Col- lege London found that a one-week mindfulness intervention eased symp- toms in the short-term for 19 adults with severe depression. A comparison group that underwent a one-week intervention of guided imager y relaxation reaped similar relief. In both groups, the positive changes were linked with an ability to decenter from negative thinking. But in the long run, the research- ers believe that the broader emotion-regulating skills of mindfulness practice would be more effective in maintaining these initial improvements. ● AD DharmaCraf ts THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES THE CATALOG OF MEDITATION SUPPLIES Meditation Cushions Yoga Mats Inspirational Jewelry Meditation CDs DharmaKids Collection since 1979 dharmacrafts.com 866.339.4198 Keycode MFA Request a Catalog Call for Volume Discounts on Cushions Sign Up for Teaching Emails 14 mindful February 2017 what’s new PHOTOGRAPHBYGRAPHICBURGER.COM
