The second session involves taking a deeper dive into mindfulness practice. We begin by debriefing participants on their initial experience with mindfulness from the prior week. As this mindfulness might be quite novel for certain participants, there may have been strong opinions or emotional reactions elicited in response to the homework. This material provides a context for the discussion of the experience of cognitive slip-ups as we age and how mindfulness can be one way to offset those slips. The facilitator then introduces the concept of cognitive reserve as a “mental bank account” that can be enhanced through mindfulness.
