How meditation can help you


     The purpose of Meditation is to find inner peace and quiet.  It can be used to teach you how to focus your attention and become more aware of your internal landscape. It can also be used to become aware of yourself as a unique expression of creation and your interconnectedness to all of life everywhere. 

     These practices will help you manage your stress, focus better, be happier and feel more connected to yourself and to the life around you (family, friends, pets, your garden, etc.).  They also help you to manage your emotions, feel more centered by finding peace and calm on the inside.  You will be healthier in your body/mind/spirit/emotional body. 

     Research has shown that meditation is of great benefit for multiple reasons.  Symptoms decrease.  Anxiety and depression are reduced significantly.  Insomnia is greatly improved.  People with chronic pain required less treatment.  Blood pressure and heart rate can be normalized. Learning deep breathing exercises brings more oxygen into the systems of the body which aids in improving blood oxygenation and circulation and increases lymphatic circulation.  All in all, you become more at ease with yourself and happier.  

     In class  you will learn a number of different meditation techniques using words, sounds and movement.  These meditations are guided and structured to meet the needs of participants.  Working with breath and awareness you will learn to focus, clear your mind, develop a deep sense of peace and relaxation, bring healing energy to where it is needed and open to deeper states of consciousness.  The energy of the group helps to deepen your experience.  Come join us for a unique journey into better health and healing.  You are welcome to join us at any time.  You will also be given tools to help you develop you own ongoing practice.
