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.

When you lead from your heart you will transform all around you through inspired action
