Developing a mindful meditation practice requires discipline, respect, and love leading to a deep sense of compassion for oneself, others, and all of life. Judgement is replaced with understanding. An all or nothing perspective is replaced with a full spectrum of options. You are no longer relegated to only the past and future, but a perspective that is all inclusive just by being in the present moment which meditation allows.
Studying and practicing meditation with a neurologist for many years led me to silent retreats in the desert and an incredible journey that I will never forget which I look forward to sharing with those interested in learning this path to healing..
Science now tells us that this practice leads to new neuronal activity resulting in new brain cells that are shared with the whole body, not just with the mind. So this practice leads to improved thinking and a healthier body because it addresses the whole system. It has shown to heal trauma in the brain and bodya through research. Before meditation, it's helpful to do some basic yoga postures to relax the body so that your sitting meditation is relaxed and comfortable.
Being mindful calms everything down so that you can see clearly and be fully connected to this moment and to your life. It allows you to see all things without judgement and with love and compassion. Being in the present moment is where all potential and possibility exist.
