Free Open Meditation

Meditation ensures an overall feeling of well being resulting in a better management of stress. A person sits in a posture usually in relaxing mode and concentrate his/her mind over one point with eyes closed. The mind is concentrated up to an extent when an individual feels that he has no interaction with the surroundings, in fact the mind reaches in a neutral stage thereby relieving mental exhaustion. Meditation restores the body to a calm state, helping the body to repair itself, and preventing damage due to the physical effects of stress. 

In the process of meditation the mind develops a lot of positive energy through many changes in the basic brain wave patterns. The study of brain waves during the process of meditation has clearly shown that there is considerable development of alpha type of waves in the brain during the process of meditation. These brain waves have long standing beneficial effects on the entire human body. The mind is also deeply relaxed and experiences a unique state of calmness. This too has deep effect on the entire system and the whole system feels refreshed and thoroughly rejuvenated. 

There are many benefits to meditating with others. Coming together with a shared intention can have profound impacts on our lives,our communities, and our universe.
