Connections: Meditation and Mindfulness

Meditation and mindfulness are all the rage - okay, that's perhaps the wrong expression. Meditation and mindfulness are very popular these days. Magazine covers, celebrity endorsers, and more western New York locations to practice. What are the benefits? How do the various approaches differ? Our guests:

  • Bodhin Kjolhede, Cecily Fuhr, and Rick Smith, Rochester Zen Center
  • Lou and Marilyn Guadagnino, Living Stress Free, Inc.
