Studies show that meditation and chanting have positive effects on your emotions, brain and body – calming emotions, increasing the ability to process information and even softening physical pain. The National Institute of Health (NIH) tells us that meditation may physically change the brain and body, potentially improving many health problems with lasting effects beyond the time you spend in meditation.
Regular meditation practice can create new neural pathways for peaceful thoughts and calmer emotions.
We will enjoy:
Aromatherapy for calming
An easy stress release exercise
A short guided meditation
A longer silent meditation
After meditation, stay for a free call-and-response chanting experience. It will uplift and inspire you for your weekend!
Mantras are the mind vibration in relationship to the Cosmos. The science of mantra is based on the knowledge that sound is a form of energy, having structure, power and a definite predictable effect on the human psyche…Mantra takes the vibratory effect of each of your molecules into the Infinity of the Cosmos. ~Siri Singh Sahib, Yogi Bhajan
