·  Reducing worry and feelings of anxiety

·  Improving tolerance of chronic pain

·  Lifting mood and appreciating what is good in life

·  Managing interpersonal conflict more effectively

·  Enhancing feelings of self-worth and compassion for others

·  What are the benefits and how can mindfulness help at a time like this? 

·  Some neuroscience and scientific evidence of its benefits

·  Outline of the different types of practices

·  Explanation of the process of meditation practice

·  A guided practice

·  Resources for further practice

·  Comments and questions
