IF YOU’VE REACHED A CERTAIN AGE, you may be wondering about the “golden years” and when they’ll start. But, as many Baby Boomers will tell you, sometimes it feels more like rusting, as chronic conditions make themselves known . . . and felt. The Mindful Boomer: Skills for Aging and Dying is a gentle guide to the practice of mindful meditation. Through mindful meditation you will learn how to manage the stress, anxiety, and aches and pains associated with your aging body. Just a few hours a week of quiet reflection has significant mental health benefits as well. Research with MRIs has proven that just eight weeks of mindful meditation training shrinks the area of the brain that triggers the “fight or flight” response that leads to anxiety and depression. The Mindful Boomer: Skills for Aging and Dying provides fifteen guided meditations to help you strengthen your consciousness, sensory clarity, and mental calmness and composure. It may also help you come to peace with yourself, your past, and your relationships with others.
