Over 20 million U.S adults have meditated in the past year. Research on the effects of meditation has concluded that meditation has both physical and psychological benefits and may even be able to change the brain. Brought to you by: Call of Sedona Moving Meditation is the act of quieting the mind and directing your complete attention to whatever you are doing at the moment. Guided Meditation is a session conducted with verbal instruction from a teacher. FOUR MAIN ΤΥPES OF MEDITATION During Sensory Meditation the mind is focused on sights, sounds, tastes, scents and other physical stimuli. In Mindfulness Meditation the key is to realize that we are not our thoughts, emotions or actions. The focus of the mind is the mind itself. MEDITATION MAY HELP: 1. Your brain's ability to change, structurally and functionally, (called neuroplasticity), allowing you to better control your thoughts and reactions. 2. To decrease respiratory rates and blood pressure. 3. To create thicker cortical walls in the brain improving decision-making, attention and memory. 5. To slow the process of aging by protecting your "telomeres" (chromosome ends) 6. To decrease muscle tension, 4. To decrease feelings of depression and irritability. stress, and pain.
