Unjangling the 21st Century Mind


Unjangling the 21st Century Mind

Medical practice in the west is evidence based. This has the effect of encouraging us to see the human body as little more than a collection of interlocking systems ... physical, electrical and chemical.

But, increasingly, mainstream medical practitioners are adopting non-western techniques such as “Mindfulness” to help us unjangle and focus a mind made tense and unresponsive by our 21st century frenzy. Medically, its application is called Mindfulness Based Stress Relief.

All this will be clarified by this week’s guest In Conversation with Noel Cheer on Triangle Television. Catherine Cook is a lecturer in Postgraduate Nursing in the School of Health and Social Services at the Albany Campus of Massey University.

Triangle Television, Wednesday 12th of September at 7:00pm and repeated Thursday at 12:30pm.

Triangle Television, the home of original public broadcasting, can be received in the Auckland region on UHF Channels 41, 42 and 52.
