Mindfulness Meditation

Meditation is a practice of concentrated focus on a sound, object, visualization, the breath, movement, or attention itself in order to increase awareness of the present moment, promote relaxation, and enhance person and spiritual growth.

Research on mindfulness continues to evolve and a look at the state of science from Greater Good at Berkeley shows:

  • Meditation almost certainly sharpens your attention.
  • Long-term, consistent meditation seems to increase resiliency to stress.
  • Meditation appears to increase compassion and make our compassion more effective.
