Weekly Meditation Evenings
Meditation has many practical benefits. Scientific studies are now examining the effect of meditation in a number of areas, including stress response, immune system function, cognitive function, pain management and levels of compassion and empathy.
In one study using MRI data, it was observed that there is "significantly larger "grey matter" in the right orbit-frontal cortex of meditators. The larger volumes in these regions might account for meditators abilities and habits to cultivate positive emotions, retain emotional stability and engage in mindful behavior."*
The weekly meditation evenings offer a comfortable, welcoming environment for people to come together and experience relief from their hectic day. The guided meditation practices, including - the Supreme Light of Supreme Love, The Happiness Meditation, Chakra Dhyana, Circle of Bliss and others support a neurobiological shift in the brain. These meditations activate an energetic shift which causes people to feel more connected to others and more compassionate. These benefits help the individual, their families, and their communities.
These weekly meditation meetings are suitable for beginners and long-time meditators.
