Meditation, Mindfulness and Relaxation
Meditation allows us to focus on one thing, to be in the moment, to be mindful.
Our lives are so busy that taking time out to just be is more important than ever.
I chose my Buddha because he looks peaceful and happy, this is how I feel when I meditate regularly and this is the feeling I would like you to experience.
Meditation is not just about relaxation, it has many health benefits including:
- Encouraging you to breathe properly
- Supporting your immune system
- Helping you to reduce your blood pressure
- Allowing you to focus on a particular problem or situation
Our current lifestyles frequently lead us into stressful situations and for some people they never get out of ‘fight or flight’ mode.
This leads to our adrenal glands being overworked, our hearts beat faster, our breath becomes more shallow and faster and our muscles are tense and primed for action. This is why Adrenal Fatigue, Thyroid problems and hormonal problems are so prevalent now.
Meditation or Mindfulness is a universal practice that has evolved throughout the world and has its roots firmly in history. Each culture has their own expression of meditation be it spiritual, religious or just helping you to relax.
For me, like Homeopathy I believe the practice of meditation is a personal one; each person will find their own way. To me, it is more important that people practice regularly rather than adhere to a particular position or style, During my classes we will cover the many different styles and practices of meditation / mindfulness; this allows you to find what suits you and it will help you find your own way of meditating.
I will be running classes in the St Columb area in the future
