Meditation and Medicine: How Does the Development of your Spiritual Life with Meditation Enhance your Health?

Have you heard of mindfulness meditation and wondered what it is all about? Or have you questioned how meditation can enhance your health? Join Knollwood member Dr. Rebecca Wells, a neurologist and clinical researcher at Wake Forest Baptist Health, as she explores the neuroscience behind mindfulness meditation and how this practice can be incorporated into your spiritual life.

From 5:30–6:15 p.m. join us for a meal and to share the joys and concerns of our community, with the faith formation program following from 6:15 - 7:00 p.m.

Deuteronomy 30:15-20
1 Corinthians 3:1-9
Matthew 5:21-26

Jesus warns that unrestrained anger makes one “liable to judgment” (Mt. 5:21). Unless such anger is examined, tested, and winnowed, it can destroy relationships and community. Thankfully, Jesus teaches us what to do when we’re “mad as hell.”
