If you are interested in learning about meditation to help calm your mind, you may want to plan on attending.
Meditation has become a popular way to reduce stress and find inner peace. Experienced meditators and brain scientists are discovering that the practice of meditation produces physiological, psychological, and spiritual benefits. In general, people who meditate experience less anxiety and depression. They also report more pleasure in life and better social relationships. Recently, meditation has been studied as a means to utilize the power of the mind to heal the body and effectively deal with physical pain. Meditation or contemplation involves focusing or concentrating the mind, so it increases awareness and mindfulness and leads to relaxation and personal growth. In this presentation, Dr. Gayle Klaybor will discuss the benefits and fundamentals of meditation and take the opportunity to participate in a guided and individual meditation experience.
