The second session involves taking a deeper dive into mindfulness practice. We begin by having a discussion about your initial experience with mindfulness from the prior week. As this mindfulness might be quite novel for certain people, it is possible that you or others in the group may have strong opinions or emotional reactions to the homework. All of this discussion material is welcomed as a way to start exploring the topic of cognitive slip-ups as we age—something common to almost all older adults—and how mindfulness can be one way to offset those slips. You will then be introduced to the concept of cognitive reserve as a “mental bank account” that can be enhanced through mindfulness.
