Benefits of Meditation

 

Although meditation is rooted in Eastern cultures, Western science has been studying the powerful  healing benefit of meditation, and has discovered how mindful awareness can support & enhance healing in a variety of conditions, including:   cancer, heart disease, headaches, chronic tension, insomnia, anxiety, depression, panic attacks, hypertension, sports performance.

We hear a lot about  meditation these days.   Many of us feel stuck in a heightened state of stress and anxiety. 

The pace of the world, technology, stress, so much to accomplish every day.

How do we find meaning in all of this, and create space and stillness within.   Food, drugs/alcohol, work, television, shopping, gambling – the list is endless – are not the answer, but what is?

There is a simple way to achieve peace by going within.

We must first be quiet, to find our center, so that regardless of what is going on around us, we are calm and stable.  The way to do this is to grow into & out of mindfulness meditation.
