Meditation of the Mind

“Please silence your phones, or as I like to say, please put them in meditation mode” is how Dr. Alejandro Chaoul began his presentation on February 4. This sentiment put the rapt—and packed—crowd at ease, as Dr. Chaoul went on to discuss his work at MD Anderson and elsewhere. Known in Houston and beyond as a strong proponent for mind-body healing, his work celebrates meditation as a vehicle for that healing. Over the course of the evening, Dr. Chaoul enlightened about the inherent benefits of being present, focusing on your breathing, and stress relief. To complement the discussion, guests were led on a brief guided meditation, followed by a light reception generously provided by MasterWord Services.
