Benefits of Meditation

The technique we teach at The Broad Place has been regarded as one of the key practice in harmonising the mind body connection since ancient times. Now, with modern research and  science, the benefits of mediation are being praised as many look further into this highly effective tool. Mediation improves creativity and clarity and reduces stress, great news as the demands of modern life increase. 

Meditation is quickly becoming a mainstream practice as studies continue to show remarkable results in the improvement of general health and wellbeing as well as emotional and spiritual connections. People are now being advised to learn a transcendent technique of meditation by their psychologist, general practitioner, chiropractor, dentist and more.

 

THE SCIENCE

Over the past 40 years more than 200 universities have funded extensive study into the benefits of a regular meditation practice. The National Institute of Health alone have invested over $26 Million into this research and have demonstrated that mediation can reduce stress and illness and shift the individuals perception of self. We now have the Western sciences to complement the Ancient Eastern philosophy.

NEUROSCIENCE

There has been a large amount of research into the neuroplasticity of the human brain, current neuroscience is now saying that our brains are totally changeable-like soft plastic. As we repeat behaviour we not only change ourselves on an mental level but also physiologically. Studies have shown the grey matter, responsible for memory, learning and abstract thinking is much larger and has faster response times in meditators.
