Meditation and mindfulness are powerful ways of promoting health, reducing stress and living more fully in the present moment. Join us at the Center to learn more about meditation and mindfulness practices.
Meditation is a naturally open process that cultivates self-care and awareness. It is a very powerful way to awaken inner listening, self-attunement and a greater experience of the present moment. Research also shows it has many positive health benefits. The practice of meditation commonly:
- Reduces stress and improves immunity
- Improves sleep
- Improves attention and concentration
- Improves cardiovascular health and decreases your risk for cardiovascular disease
- Reduces blood pressure
- Reduces pain when combined with other forms of pain management
- Assists with the treatment of anxiety and depression
At the Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine, we understand the personal quality of meditation and the unique nature of each person’s body, mind and soul. Different meditation tools such as guided breath work and imagery, mantra, concentration, free writing, walking and conscious eating will be explored whether you are new to meditation or wish to deepen your personal practice. There are many ways to meditate and we encourage sampling and experimenting with different classes to find the meditation style that inspires and works best for you.
Mindfulness is a powerful way of promoting health, reducing stress and living more fully in the present moment. The practice of mindfulness can bring awareness to an individual’s relationship to stress. By understanding that relationship, one can choose to develop alternative ways of being with, reacting to and addressing stress.
At the Center for Wellness and Integrative Medicine, every offering is based in mindful experience. We also offer a more directed approach to mindfulness, through hands-on study, workshops and intensive trainings in mindfulness.
