The practice of Meditation has been handed down for thousands of years by the great sages and teachers of the East. Meditation calms and stabilizes the mind, strengthens the body and creates a sense of peace and stillness.
Many research studies have shown that learning to meditate has far-reaching health benefits. For example, meditation helps us cope with stress, which is the cause of many illnesses.
