Why Learn Meditation?
Meditation training is easy to learn and provides a lifetime of benefits. People who meditate consistently report a higher quality of life with benefits in reducing stress and anxiety, mood disorders, insomnia, and hypertension.
We all know that chronic stress is harmful to health, happiness, creativity, and productivity. Over 350 published research studies on meditation have documented its effectiveness for a variety of psychological areas, including stress, anxiety, addiction, depression, eating disorders and cognitive function, among others. There’s also research to suggest that meditation can reduce blood pressure, pain response, stress hormone levels and even improve cellular health.
What is Meditation Training like?
We teach a simple, natural technique that can be practiced with only a few minutes twice each day while sitting comfortably.
It is an easy to learn and enjoyable practice, and is not a religion, philosophy, or lifestyle. Over six million people have learned it — people of all ages, cultures, and religions.
At the end of sessions, you may have tasks to repeat or do during the following seven days to ensure that your brain integrates the new learnings you have created.
What if I’m not Good at Controlling my Mind?
No problem. Unlike other meditation techniques, the practice we teach involves no concentration, no control of the mind, no contemplation, no monitoring of thoughts. Anyone can do it — even children with ADHD and soldiers with PTSD. That’s because the meditation training technique we use effortlessly allows the active mind to settle down to a state of inner calm.
