The benefits of meditation are endless. For over 5,000 years, people have used meditation to self-heal, heal others, and lift themselves to more conscious, intuitive and productive living.
Research has scientifically proven what the Indian and Oriental cultures have known and practised for centuries.
Meditation in all its forms and techniques are healthy and regarded as necessary to balance your physical, emotional, and mental health.
An essential aspect of meditation is the balancing of the mind, body with your spirit. It is this balance that helps keep illness (both of mind and body) at bay, keep us connected to our communities, nature and in living a peaceful, happy life.
When extensive group meditations commence, the benefits are widespread. According to the Transcendental Meditation organisation which orchestrates large meditation groups worldwide, the benefits are:
• conscious and subconscious relief from crime continuing long after the meditation concludes
• increased peacefulness amongst the individual meditators in the large group
• happier survivors of abuse and genocide – better mentally to heal
• refugee camp residents and survivors are mentally prepared and have more hope for their lives
