The value of meditation continues to be recognized not only by those who practice it but by researchers as well. There have been thousands of scientific studies on the benefits of meditation. Research suggests that meditation positively effects our emotional, mental and physical health.
Just a few of the many benefits of meditation include:
Self-inquiry is a practice of meditation in which we deeply engage in the art of asking questions. Our inherent curiosity and intelligence can guide us in recognizing our true self from our external concerns. Self-inquiry is a meditation practice that's been taught in many traditions and emphasizes self-knowledge. Some of the groundwork for Self-inquiry includes practicing concentration, mindfulness, visualization and developing an unbiased perspective. By asking meaningful questions in meditation we understand ourselves better as we realize we are not our thoughts, feelings, emotions or our body. We are more than our stories.
Self-inquiry is a life-long practice that will naturally ebb and flow but once you've taken this deep dive into meditation you'll always have it as a resource you can return to. A regular practice of meditation allows us to understand and forgive ourselves and others, and to envision our deeper potential.
Meditation instruction and support in establishing, reviving or maintaining a meditation practice can be included in any of your yoga, reflexology or health coaching sessions.
