July’s mindfulness meditation webinar began with a quote from a Buddhist monk: “When we get too caught up in the busyness of the world, we lose connection with one another–and ourselves.” Webinar host Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCSW, Clinical Director of Pain Connection and a person who has lived with pain for 20+ years, believes strongly in the efficacy of mindfulness. In “From ow to om: Using mindfulness to reduce pain and stress,” she taught mindfulness meditation to webinar participants hoping to use it as a tool in their treatment plan.
The U.S. Pain Foundation is excited to present the next event in its bimonthly webinar series, “From ow to om: Using mindfulness to reduce pain and stress,” featuring Gwenn Herman, LCSW, DCSW. Herman is the clinical director for U.S. Pain’s Pain Connection program, a network of support groups and other resources for people with pain.
During July’s webinar, to be held on the 17 from 1 to 2 pm EST, Herman will focus on using meditation and mindfulness to lower pain and stress levels. She will discuss the science behind mindfulness, different techniques, and lead attendees in a guided meditation. There is a great deal of scientific data to support the positive effects of mindfulness meditation for people suffering from chronic pain, and this free webinar is a rare opportunity to learn from someone who intimately understands these health issues.
