Mindful Meditation has been shown, through a multitude of research studies, to have abundant benefits. By training attention to focus on experiences in the present moment, Mindful Meditation develops compassionate awareness of self and of other. It facilitates adaptive psychological functioning with an increased sense of well-being and a decrease in psychological symptoms such as depression, rumination, and anxiety. Research evidence attests to numerous health benefits including: increased immune functioning, decreased blood pressure, reduced chronic pain, stress reduction, improved heart disease and gastrointestinal function, as well as improved sleep.
We will be sitting on chairs during meditation. Please bring what you need to feel comfortable, i.e., lumbar pillow, extra sweater.
Open to ages 45+, nonmembers welcome for $5 extra.
