Round table

The practice of meditation allows us to learn how to synchronize body and mind.  Created in 1979 by Jon Kabat-Zinn, the MBSR (Mindfulness-Based Stress reduction) program is scientifically investigated to validate the beneficial effects of meditation on health and promote the wide development of this public health program. The psychology of anxiety and depression coupled with the knowledge of stress physiology, is at the heart of the potential impact of therapeutic interventions based on mindfulness in many diseases. The effects of meditation are notable at the level of the telomeres which are real biological clocks, negatively influenced by chronic stress, and positively through meditation.

Recent studies are starting to show how practicing mindfulness changes the patient’s relationship with the present moment and life in order to deal with it more serenely. 

The panelists will discuss how meditation can reintroduce human values to improve healthcare and thus create a participatory and integrative human medicine as a whole (body, mind, heart).
