“Meditation brings wisdom; lack of meditation leaves ignorance. Know well what leads you forward and what holds you back, and choose the path that leads to wisdom” – Buddha
Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction and relaxation. It offers a natural way to improve quality of life and maintain good mental, physical and emotional health. Focusing on the present moment leads to a stage of “thoughtless awareness”. This alters the chemistry of thoughts and creates a feeling of peace, joy and acceptance. Regular meditation has an immense impact on our health and wellbeing and the more we meditate the more balanced and positive our life becomes; it can also positively affect those around us.
Some of the benefits of meditation:
- Develops creative and inspired thinking
- Boosts the immune system
- Reduces stress and tension
- Relieves insomnia
- Helps with migraines and headaches
- Assists in overcoming depression
- Creates a sense of oneness with everyone and everything
- Expands awareness
- Helps in focusing on the present moment
