Patient Events

The Mindful Breathing Laboratory offers classes, clinical programs and events for patients. Current mindfulness offerings include:

Mindfulness Meditation Practice

Mindfulness is a way of paying attention and being aware of the here and now without judging what is in front of us. Come and participate in a guided mindfulness meditation session with Dr. Benzo. This class is free and open to the public. You can contact the lab to confirm meeting times and locations.

Mindfulness for Healthy Living

This clinical program for chronic conditions offers a hands-on, mindfulness-based rehabilitation program aimed to equip patients, caregivers and providers with tools to live better. The key concept is that you can play an active role in self-care through self-awareness and self-management by setting simple goals that align with your priorities.

This class is open to Mayo Clinic patients. You must call 507-293-1989 to register.

  • Time: Tuesdays at 2:30 p.m. and Thursdays at 9 a.m.
