"The quieter you become, the more you will hear"
Meditation “refers to a variety of practices that focus on mind and body integration and are used to calm the mind and enhance overall well-being.” While there are many styles and approaches in meditation, like mindfulness that focuses on breathing and reflection, all approaches work with gaining focus and insight. The benefits experienced by meditating include improved concentration, weight management, impulse control and stress management. Mediation sessions are offered by the Dr. Alex Eingorn, TPFF Program Director, Spine, Scoliosis, Meditation and Research. Sessions are offered on-line and are free.
The health benefits of meditating are well documented and offer a way to bring calm and stillness to the mind and body. According to the National Institute for Alternative and Integrative Health, “Meditation has a history that goes back thousands of years, and many meditative techniques began in Eastern traditions.
Some types of meditation involve maintaining mental focus on a particular sensation, such as breathing, a sound, a visual image, or a mantra, which is a repeated word or phrase.
Other forms of meditation include the practice of mindfulness, which involves maintaining attention or awareness on the present moment without making judgments.
