Free Introduction to Mindfulness and Meditation Workshop

September 14, 2017
Anisfield School of Business Room 420
Introduction to Mindfulness practice and Meditation northern nj

Mindfulness is a purposeful way of focusing attention to the present moment and promotes a presence in the here and now that is often lost in today’s fast paced society. Research indicates that a mindfulness practice, including meditation, decreases anxiety and stress while enhancing the ability to concentrate and pay attention. The physical and psychological benefits of meditation and mindfulness practices have been well documented.

This free introductory session is located at Ramapo College in Northern New Jersey. The program will briefly review the meaning and benefits of mindfulness practices, and then present an experiential introduction to breath-based meditation practice. Suggestions will be offered on how to integrate a simple, but effective, mindfulness practice into one’s everyday life. We ask participants to please wear comfortable clothing to the event.

This lecture will be led by Carol Bowman, Ed.D. and Catherine Krame.

Catherine Krame
Catherine Krame

Catherine Krame has been an active participant in the community, particularly in education, for over 15 years. A desire to help children build a brighter future began with her involvement in the Mahwah Schools Foundation where she served as Vice President. Catherine was exposed to Mindfulness and began a meditation practice 20 years ago, cultivating skills that had such a profound impact on her life that she set out to share the benefits with others. This passion, coupled with her and her husband’s strong commitment to education, led to a partnership with Ramapo College to create the Krame Center for Contemplative Studies and Mindful Living. Catherine is a qualified Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) teacher, completing a rigorous training program at the Center for Mindfulness within the University of Massachusetts Medical School. She is also certified in Positive Psychology.
