"Meditation is the highest form of activity a man can perform"

Paramhansa Yoaganada

Meditation is a way to train the mind by teaching it to become very focused and aware of the present, not jumping around to what has happened in the past or what might happen in the future.

It will help you relax and at the same time become more concentrated and clear headed. It developes self-awareness as the student begins to 'watch' their thoughts from the outside, allowing them to begin to understand what they really spend most of their time thinking about, which sounds crazy,

but we let our thoughts think themselves most of the time, and these habitual thought patterns can often be damaging.But we are so used to them that we think they are who we are, until we start meditating. It therefore works well to reduce stress by taking you 'out of the moment' and the issue that has been at the forefront of your mind is let go, and when you come back to it afterwards, if you need to, it does not seem so important. This in turn improves your state of mind and boosts confidence.

'Thanks to the meditation classes the new job experience is not as overwhelming as expected and more the that, the whole leaving experience is different.  I will never thank you enough for all the insights, you literally saved my life!' Susana Kon

The Benefits of Meditation

Recent scientific studies have shown:

  • During meditaion oxygen consumption drops by 10 to 20% and it produces a deeper state of rest than sleep. In fact, 75% of insomniacs were able to sleep normally after they had meditated. 
  • Meditation is the only activity that reduces blood lactate, a marker of stress and anxiety.
  • Meditation decreases the stress hormone cortisol and increases the happy, calming hormones melatonin and serotonin.
  • Meditators secrete more of the youth related hormone DHEA, having on average 47% more. DHEA hightens memory, preserves sexual functions and helps control weight.
  • Long term meditators experience 80% less heart disease and 50% less cancer.
  • 34% of people with chronic pain significantly reduced their pain medication when they began meditating.
  • Meditating is known to produce 'spontaneous remissions' in 10% of cancer cases, reduce psychosomatic illnesses, like psoriasis and reduce blood pressure. It is also a key component in addiction programs.
