Benefits of Mindfulness and Meditation

Positive Meditation offers non-religious, simple and effortless Mindfulness and Meditation classes. It can be practiced anywhere, anytime for around an ideal period of 20 minutes (less will do). There are no requirements to sit cross-legged on the floor (although you can if you so choose). We just use chairs (or floor space if clients prefer to sit on the floor or lie down) – whatever is most appropriate or comfortable for the individual.

  

Mindfulness and Meditation aims to encourage a state of deep rest and relaxation with the mind becoming increasingly silent yet the meditator is completely awake, alert and aware.  This allows the body’s natural healing mechanism to function fully, establishing better health, well-being, balance and calmness.  It has also been proven to increase people's resilience to life’s ups and downs and encourage positivity of mind, happiness and enhanced mental clarity, concentration and creative productivity.
