    Should I Meditate?  Mindfulness and Meditation  for the Pharmacy Professional. Program 172.

    Program Description

    “Mindfulness is paying attention, on purpose, in the present moment and non-judgmentally; in other words, knowing what you are doing while you are doing it” -John Kabat-Zinn, PhD

    What is “meditation”?

    A focused practice in which you are anchored in the present moment by the breath, bodily sensations, mantra, (or another point of focus).

    Pharmacists work in a stressful environment where there is a zero tolerance for errors. How we deal with the stress may effect our work performance and crossover to our personal lives.

    We will discuss Mindfulness Meditation Techniques, Four Elements of Mindfulness Meditation, and their application.

    Pharmacist Program Objectives

    1. Define the terms “meditation” and “mindfulness”

    2.Explain the usefulness of meditation and mindfulness in overall health and wellness
