Feeling stressed out, anxious or low on attention span? Come out to Pine Run’s Meditation Support Group. Our weekly session will help you discover the many benefits of this increasingly popular habitual process of training your mind to focus and redirect your thoughts.
Meditation is derived from the Latin “meditatio” which means “to think or contemplate.” An ancient practice, meditation allows you to pause your busy life and calm your mind and body. The only requirement is a quiet place with minimal distractions.
Here are several other benefits to meditation:
- Improves self-image and helps to have a positive outlook on life.
- Develops a greater understanding of yourself and how you relate to those around you.
- Increases the strength and endurance of your attention.
- Helps to fight normal age-related memory loss.
- Increases positive feelings and actions toward yourself and others.
- Relaxes your body, releasing tension and placing you in a peaceful state to help you fall asleep.
While many people choose to meditate by themselves, Pine Run’s Meditation Support Group allows you to find peace while connecting with others. Nothing compares with face-to-face contact, and meditating with a group helps you develop a healthy meditation habit. Joining a meditation support group is also physically good for you, as it allows you to be inspired and motivated to connect with others with a common goal to be more relaxed.
If you ever need guidance, the meditation partners of Pine Run’s Meditation Support Group will be there for you. We’ll help each other through this experience and, together, reach physical and mental peace.
Join us in this healthy environment that can also be fun and perfect for socializing and learning.
