Meditation is a part of many spiritual traditions. Time for silence and contemplation opens up a journey of self discovery and self mastery. There have been many scientific studies of meditation and of its benefits to people that practice it regularly. Some of the proven benefits are that:
- It reduces stress levels
- It boosts the immune system
- It improves concentration
- It lowers blood pressure
- It reduces cholesterol levels
- regular meditators make less Doctor and hospital visits
When you are calm and relaxed it is easier to meets life’s challenges. Like a musical instrument it takes practice to perfect meditation and to gain control over our “monkey mind”. A Buddhist monk described the human mind as leaping from thought to thought like a “drunken juvenile monkey that has been stung by a wasp”.
Beginners’ meditation classes will give you a range of techniques to use so that you can change the discordant chatter of the mind into quiet harmony.
