    Are you an older adult interested in improving your mood?

    If you are a Healthy Adult between the ages of 55 and 90 looking to improve your mood, this study may be for you!

    This study is a 2-Day Retreat at the Institute of Noetic Sciences' Earthrise Retreat center in Petaluma, California May 20th-21st. All lodging and meal expenses will be paid by IONS.

    The purpose of the study is to see how two interventions, iRest meditation training or Vacation, may affect depression symptoms in older adults.

    You will have a 50/50 chance of receiving the iRest condition where you will receive meditation training OR the Vacation condition where you will enjoy leisure activities.

    In both conditions, after attending the retreat, you will also be asked to practice meditation, or listen to music at your home, 20 minutes a day for 6 weeks. For this home practice, you will receive an iPod installed with your home practice tracks. You will be trained on how to use the iPod.

    Measures will be collected before and after the retreat and 6 weeks later.
