About Meditation

because life can feel better.

We have come to understand the power and positive effects of breathing through our own personal journey toward self-discovery and healing. Breathing is one of the most fundamental tools we have to enhance our overall well-being. It is readily available at any given moment and can be integrated into every part of our life. The breath and the various ways to utilize it are gaining popularity due to an ever-growing body of research and its scientific health benefits.


Meditation is a learnable way to bring us back to “center.” Aligning body and breath enables us to slow down and be present in the moment, not only while meditating but throughout our daily lives. The practice of meditation has been documented to reduce stress and anxiety, assist in sleep disorders, enhance creative thinking, strengthen the immune system, boost performance, improve relationships and much, much more.

All types [of meditation] cultivate attention and awareness, and research shows that meditation can bolster concentration. Even a little seems to go a long way. A recent study in the journal Frontiers in Human Neuroscience found that just 10 minutes of mindfulness meditation training improved people’s reaction times and accuracy scores on a computer-based attention test. Enhanced thinking and memory are two more benefits that research has consistently linked with meditation, Mrazek says. The practice can also help you better recognize and understand your emotions—and to let them go instead of becoming embroiled in worry or rumination. This ability to regulate emotions may be one reason meditation can help people with depression and anxiety disorders.

Although the practice of meditation is associated with a sense of peacefulness and physical relaxation, practitioners have long claimed that meditation also provides cognitive and psychological beneļ¬ts that persist throughout the day,” says study senior author Sara Lazar of the MGH Psychiatric Neuroimaging Research Program and a Harvard Medical School instructor in psychology. “This study demonstrates that changes in brain structure may underlie some of these reported improvements and that people are not just feeling better because they are spending time relaxing.

Through meditation you actually develop consciousness. In fact, by accessing your own unconscious you gather insight into your conflicts, and find the capacity and resources to meet them. Meditation is so powerful, that if I were dying and had only one gift to give to my family, it would be the word meditation.
