There have been studies done that show that meditation actually develops the part of the brain that helps us look at things in a more balanced and relaxed manner. For some people it is as good as an anti-depressant or pain pill. There are some situations that there is not an easy answer to solve. This gives us the opportunity to work with our brain to settle the mental and emotional things that we are dealing with. I have taken a course in meditation based on the book, “Full catastrophe Living” by Jon Kabat-Zinn. I think this is something that is well worth encouraging our clients toward to find good balance in their life.
