What is Meditation for Health?
Meditation, and particularly a mindfulness-based approach to meditation can bring real improvement in health and reduction of the impact of stress. A body of research results, and many personal stories attest to this capacity for meditation practice to be an important part of health care.
In our ‘Meditation for Health’ courses and ongoing classes you learn and practice these methods in very simple, easy-to-learn ways.
In some ways meditation for health and relaxation is as simple as just sitting down in a balanced posture; and then getting up again 10 or 20 minutes later. It can be approached that way.
For many people it is better to have some method to it, but still it is useful to keep the method as simple and natural as possible. Most of the ancient, true and tried meditation traditions have methods that are on that simple end of the spectrum. My experience with thousands of clients/students is that this simplicity is ideal. Our classes, corporate training etc emphasises keeping-it-simple so that it is easily learned and taken away as a lifelong life skill. The ongoing and more advanced learning is NOT about more complicated techniques—it is about coming to grips with the tricks that our ‘over-active minds’ play. It is about learning more about ourselves and how to deal with our minds’ objections to experiencing stillness and peace. (Read more)
