Meditation Benefits

There are so many positive effects of a regular meditation practice including: relaxation, calmness and optimism, increase in attention, concentration, creativity, motivation, acceptance, empathy and compassion of self and others.

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. 

Find more joy Generate acceptance, optimism, self-esteem & motivation Relieve muscle tension Relax the nervous system Manage feelings & thoughts Release fears Expand hearfulness & lovingkindness Reduce anxiety & stress Improve depression Relieve insomnia Lower blood pressure Diminish intensity of headaches & migraines Restore balanced function to the digestive system Free the mind from self-doubt and inner talk
