What is Mindfulness Meditation and what are the benefits?

Mindfulness Meditation is defined as: present moment awareness with non-judgmental attention. It has been proven to be a great support for the natural busyness of our lives, as well as to create space for difficult emotions and thoughts. When we are not living fully in the moment as it is, we are reacting to life, instead of being engaged with it. Mindfulness has the capacity to teach us how to slow down, pause, and respond to what life is presenting.

In this series of classes, we will explore simple but effective meditations that will enhance our ability to live life fully, no matter what is happening.  Some call it mindfulness; it is also known as mindfulness-based stress reduction, awareness, or meditation. There are active and passive forms, and they are virtually accessible to anyone – that’s right, we can all do it!

Anxietystressdepression, exhaustion, and irritability all decrease with regular sessions of meditation.  Memory improves, reaction times become faster, mental and physical stamina increase, thinking becomes clearer, sleep improves, blood pressure lowers, which all leads to fewer doctors visits; the benefits to mindfulness meditation are endless!
