    Mindfulness Matters: How Perception Shapes Health

    Dr. Ellen Langer is a trailblazer in psychology known internationally as “the mother of mindfulness.” She was the first woman to be tenured at Harvard in her field. Dr. Langer has been included in New York Times Magazine’s “Year in Ideas” issue for her revolutionary experiments in social psychology that have earned her global recognition. Additionally, she is the author of the bestselling books "Mindfulness" and "Counterclockwise," along with a plethora of other books. Dd. Langer has received three Distinguished Scientists awards, the Arthur W. Staats Award for Unifying Psychology, a Guggenheim Fellowship, and the Liberty Science Genius Award.

The duo discuss the connection between mind and body and the implication this has for health and wellness in our everyday lives. Dr. Langer delves into a discussion of her most recent memoir “The Mindful Body,” that combines personal antidotes with a lifetime of research. Additionally, Dr. Langer shares how people’s perceptions and language can alter their lives.
