Beach will share the four basic elements of meditation practice developed by HarvardProfessor Herbert Benson along with ideas from Jon Kabat-Zinn, with the Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School.

“During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress,” said Beach. “This process can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that can benefit both your emotional well-being and your overall health.”

Beach, who has been lay ordained in Japanese Soto Zen Buddhism, attended seminary in Wake Forest, North Carolina. He has been educated and trained in addiction counseling and has worked as a group facilitator, program manager and clinical supervisor.

He developed a private practice in Durham, North Carolina, teaching stress management and meditation to individuals and groups before relocating with his family to Savannah where he has facilitated numerous workshops, presentations and training on stress management, relaxation and meditation.
