Mindfulness for Senior Judges and Lawyers in Unpredictable Times

Event Description

This CLE is presented by the Senior Lawyers & Judges Section.

This session is REMOTE-ONLY participation via Zoom.

Description:

Retired or not, senior judges and lawyers have complex worries and distractions, now more than ever.  Senior Judge Miles will introduce tips for some mindful time-outs, and will take a deeper dive into the scientific and anecdotal evidence which supports the benefits of mindfulness and meditation.  Neuroplasticity of the brain is a key concept and Judge Miles will show that a mindfulness practice begun at any stage of life promotes improvement in resilience to stressors.  The curious and the doubtful are especially welcome!
