Our Bodies and Inflammation

In this session, we will talk about developing a more effective response to stress, calling upon awareness of habitual patterns and behaviors. Participants are introduced to how inflammation affects health, with an emphasis on the connection to chronic pain. We will also be leading a longer sitting meditation, which will allow you to practice more deeply on your own.
