There is no doubt that lawyers experience a great deal of stress in their daily lives. The combination of unrelieved stress and unconscious craving often contributes to substance abuse and a range of addictive behaviors. The practice of meditation can help make us aware of our habitual patterns, as well as alleviate our stress and cravings.
During the workshop, speaker Martha Sullivan will start with a brief period of silent meditation, followed by a discussion about the underlying discomforts and triggers that drive addictive behaviors, and suggestions for how to alleviate those discomforts. Martha will talk about the neuroscience of stress, how meditation helps us release and recover from stress, and practical ways to begin a meditation practice and how to fit it into a busy schedule.
