Cathie Dunal, M.D., MPH, a board-certified preventive medicine physician and founder of More Than Medicine M.D., is launching an in-depth meditation learning group designed to teach the Jon Kabat Zinn style of mindfulness meditation and to make meditation part of a daily routine. The fall group begins from 9:30 to 11 a.m., September 12, at her office.

The six-session class is presented by Dr. Judy Flaxman, a clinical psychologist, professor of psychology at the Illinois School of Professional Psychology and director of the Center for Multimodal Treatment, in Evanston.

Mindfulness meditation is a collection of practices that help people slow down, relax and live in the present moment. Its health benefits are proven by research, improving ADD symptoms as much as medication, boosting cognitive function, preventing brain atrophy, decreasing depression, improving sleep, improving blood pressure and decreasing cardiovascular disease risk.
