“There are different things one can do to establish and hasten the peace process. Meditation is one way.”
Mike Love


What is it?
We all experience stress in our daily lives and when this occurs, our body automatically reacts to prepare us to fight or run.  In cases of extreme danger, this physical response is necessary.  However, when we are in a prolonged state of agitation or anxiety, damage occurs to many parts of our body. Meditation affects us in exactly the opposite way by restoring our body to a calm state, helping it repair itself and preventing new damage occurring.

How does it work?
Meditation involves sitting in a relaxed position with the spine and head erect. The aim is to learn to control the chatter and de-clutter the mind. Many practitioners attach a spiritual component to meditation, but it can also be a secular exercise.

What are the benefits?
When practicing meditation, studies show a reduction in heart rate and breathing, our blood pressure normalises and we use oxygen more efficiently. Our adrenal glands produce less cortisol and adrenaline and our immune function improves. Our mind also clears and our creativity increases. People who meditate regularly find it easier to give up life damaging habits such as over-eating, smoking, alcohol and drug use.

The meditation classes with Lisa help me to take a deeper look at what is going on in my life and to get more clarity as to what is important and what is not. I feel fully supported in the group environment and always leave feeling grounded and loved.
