Benefits of Meditation

Meditation photoMeditation has been a centuries old practice that calms the mind and relaxes the body. We are all aware of the ill effects of stress and tension in our daily lives. Meditation is a means for "everybody" to help themselves find inner peace, calm, tolerance, patience, creativity, and enlightenment. When we learn to quiet the mind and tune into our bodies and inner voice, we are able to better cope with the world around us. Our relationship to ourselves and others improves. We develop self-realization and begin to manifest benefits on the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual levels. Many of the benefits of meditation have been proven scientifically. Regular and consistent meditation practice that brings results.

At The Center for Transformational Wellness/Be Your Inner Light, our goal is to aid each client in the development of a personal meditation practice through our classes. The classes focus on learning different aspects of meditation and offer tools for success. We teach visualization practices and techniques and explore how emotions relate to our chakra points and affect our wellbeing on multiple levels. We also practice through guided meditations.
