MEDITATION BENEFITS  In meditation thoughts decrease and the mind becomes quieter.  Energy, previously utilized by the thinking process, is released and energizes the brain.  An energized brain is a happy, active, and attentive brain with open senses, and clear and enhanced perception.  There are so many positive effects of a regular meditation practice including: relaxation, calmness and optimism, increase in concentration, attention, creativity, motivation, empathy, and acceptance and compassion of self and others.
