History & Researcher
Ancient Hindu holy books, written more then 4000 years ago, go into great detail about meditation. In fact, Buddhist history recorded around 500 B.C. indicates that Buddha reached ‘enlightenment’ while meditating under the Bodhi tree. His success with the practice helped meditation gain widespread popularity across Asia. From there, many cultures and countries adopted their own ways of practicing meditation. Today, however, the Eastern styles are still the most practiced.
Most of the Western culture did not adopt meditation until the 20th Century. Although meditation was accepted in some Christian and Jewish sects in the 2nd century A.D., over time and with the tightening reigns of “religion”, it fell out of favor. In the 1960’s and 1970’s movements to be more open minded to different views and ways of being led researchers and health professionals to begin observing the major benefits meditation could provide.
According to ABC News and a recent report for the Harvard Medical School, last year more than 6 million people were prescribed meditation by their healthcare professionals. The National Institute of Health, the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, and Harvard Medical School are just a handful of esteemed institutions that are expounding on the multiple benefits of meditation.
There is evidence that meditation has been practiced for almost 5000 years. But, meditation has evolved a lot since its early days, so we think it’s important to dispel any preconceived notions you may have about it…
Modern Meditation is not:
- About just “blissing out” or trying not to have “bad thoughts or emotions”
- Is not about religion, or even spirituality.
- Hypnosis – where a person standing over you with a shiny object whispering, “You will only wake up when I snap my fingers and then you will remember nothing…”
- A way to force your mind to go blank and send you into a trance state
Modern Meditation is:
- A scientifically proven way to effectively reduce stress and stress-related disorders
- An easy way to rejuvenate your body and stimulate your brain function
- Being used in over 2000 hospitals in the United States to support a faster healing process
- A tool that can quiet your mind, strengthen your body and free your spirit
- Something that can be done anywhere at anytime, is not difficult to learn and is easy to get right
- A way to be “mindful” of your thoughts, actions and reactions to the little moments in life.
Once one realizes the life-changing physiological and psychological potential that creating a practice of meditation can offer, it becomes obvious that this ancient technique has been around for 5000 years because IT WORKS! Research proves that meditation can provide thousands of benefits. In fact, the Mayo Clinic states: “Meditation can give you a sense of calm, peace and balance that benefits both your emotional well-being and your overall health. And these benefits don’t end when your meditation session ends. Meditation can help carry you more calmly through your day and can even improve certain medical conditions.”
