Benefits of the course
You may have all heard that meditation is good for you, but how is it good for you? There are now over 3,000 scientific studies and discoveries on the benefits of meditation, both physical and mental. In addition, recent research has confirmed that the brain’s structure is actually flexible (or ‘plastic’), not hard-wired, and unalterable.
Did you know that there are around 86 billion neurons in the human brain, processing and transmitting information through electrical and chemical signals? Neurons are connected by synapses, which are the small gaps (or ‘pathways’) between neurons that allow information to pass from one neuron to the next.
Each of these pathways is associated with a particular action or behavior, which means that every time you think, feel or do something, you strengthen this pathway (i.e.- habits are simply well-traveled pathways, so your brain finds them easy to do).
All of Cotswold Meditation & Mindfulness' meditation and mindfulness courses are based on the fact that the human brain has a property of ‘neuroplasticity’, which means that both the brain and the nervous system can change structurally and functionally in regular mediators, and this can result in a dramatic change in your outlook on life events.
So, knowing that the brain is a muscle that can grow and change depending on what you do and how you think, meditation and mindfulness are essential in helping the brain to create new pathways.
In other words, it turns out that you CAN "teach an old dog new tricks" after all!
In fact, meditation and mindfulness have an endless variety of benefits to offer. Practicing meditation only 20 minutes a day gives your body a rest, which is 2-5 times deeper than sleep! It is like a two-hour nap without a sleep hangover, enabling you to refocus and reach your true potential. You can learn how to still your inner dialogue, how to get in touch with your emotions, handle negative thoughts, and much more!
