Meditation is the practice of quieting the mind and connecting with the essence of who you are. Learning to meditate and creating an ongoing meditation practice can be a pathway to a more centered, happy, and successful life. It is a simple practice, and can be learned by anyone.
Research has shown many benefits that come from meditation. These include lower stress levels, better reaction during stressful situations, and a higher pain threshold. People with chronic pain can reduce their pain by 44% simply by meditating regularly.
(As a reference, one dose of morphine reduces pain by 20%)
People become more patient. Creativity increases dramatically, as does one's sense of humor, along with productivity and satisfaction with life.
There are as many ways to meditate as there are people. Working with a teacher can help you find your way to meditation more quickly and enjoyably.
I have both group and individual meditation instruction available. Meditation instruction can work by Telehealth or in person. Contact me so we can discuss what would be most appropriate for you.
