Mindfulness Meditation Groups Encinitas, CA
Meditation can improve physical and emotional health.
Meditation has been a long-standing practice to calm the mind, focus the thoughts, and reduce stress. This Eastern tradition is quickly becoming a daily practice in the Western world as we catch up on the benefits of meditation and meditation groups. As meditation makes an impact in our daily lives, more and more research is being done relaying powerful findings.
The research on meditation shows overall health benefits that range from a reduced risk of cancer recurrence to lowered blood pressure, to the alleviation of depression and anxiety. In fact, studies have demonstrated that meditation can have the same helpful effect on depression as taking anti-depressant medication.
Meditation is proven to help people with PTS. Cancer diagnosis and treatment can be very traumatic and studies have linked PTS to the diagnosis and treatment of cancer in patients. These long-term effects are impactful and can cause much harm if left untreated. At Revivorship, that’s where group meditation therapy comes in, in addition to the meditation you may experience in some of your individualized sessions, such as yoga therapy.
How Can Meditation Groups Help Me?
Meditation helps us live a more fulfilling, compassionate, creative, and peaceful life. As cancer survivors, we understand the value of a life well-lived and people well-loved. For better or worse, we may understand the gift of life more than the average person. A meditation practice can help you live with more intentional joy and gratitude.
Additionally, cancer treatment can often feel lonely and that loneliness can lead to depression and anxiety. Meditating in a group is a uniquely beautiful way to connect to yourself and to others. The group increases the potency of the meditation and offers a sense of belonging and community that are vital to cancer patients and our very nature as human beings.
If you or someone you know is struggling with stress, anxiety, depression, or on the path of recovery after cancer treatment, we encourage you to contact Revivorship™ to discuss how group meditation and support in our Encinitas, CA location can help you grow, heal, and overcome. Call us today. We’re looking forward to hearing from you.
