WHAT IS GUIDED MEDITATION?
Guided meditation is when you are guided, by a narrator, to elicit a specific change in your life. The guide will instruct you to relax specific muscles in the body until they are comfortable, and will then lead you through mental images and visualizations, often of healing light or the dissipation of past wrongs. Guided meditation can be as short as a few minutes or as long as several hours. Either way, the purpose is to achieve mental, emotional and physical healing and stress relief.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN CLASS?
Each class of the series will offer a different 30-45 minute guided meditation. Not every guided mediation is created equal. First, she will help you relax by deepening your breathing and releasing tension in specific muscle groups. There may be a grounding moment, where the she will ask you to visualize your bones and feet growing roots into the ground. You will be asked to be in the present moment by actively listening to your breath or heartbeat. She will have you visualize a healing light filling your body and dispelling any illness or negative energy. She will then take you on a guided journey through your subconscious. The level of intensity will vary class to class. Last, she will slowly have you refocus on your breathing, and have you wiggle your toes and fingers to bring you back.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The main benefits of a meditation practice are stress relief and a calmer, more accepting outlook on life. According to Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn, molecular biologist, professor, and researcher at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, those who practice meditation shift the levels of brain activity from the active, stress-housing right-frontal cortex to the more stable left-frontal cortex. Meditation will literally soothe the parts of the brain that keep you wanting to always go, go, go.
