Whether this is your first time practicing meditation, or you have joined the journey with me to deepen or reignite your practice, I am grateful you are here now. Know that this journey inward may not always be easy, but it can offer profound benefits when practiced regularly. And like any other skill, it takes practice and patience to experience progress.
Perhaps the most profound benefit that meditation has on our health is counteracting the many negative effects of stress. This benefit is experienced after one session and is compounded each time you practice.
By connecting to your emotions and developing the skill to be in the present, we are able to find joy in life. Studies have shown that the control of emotions through meditation results in positive feelings.
Meditation is like exercise for your brain. Scientists have found that it can actually change how the brain functions. Meditation promotes being mindful, which is learning how to focus your mind, emotions and thoughts on the present.
