At the core of Wisdom Mind is the premise that normal cognitive aging can be a source of distress for certain older adults, and that mindfulness practice can help to alleviate that distress. To that end, this chapter provides an overview of the major cognitive domains and how our abilities within those domains can change with age. This material will be particularly informative for those who have not worked with older adults or do not have a background in clinical neuropsychology. It will allow the reader to connect with some of the common cognitive slip-ups that group participants may spontaneously report, so that these slip-ups can be situated within the context of mindfulness as presented in this program.
