In our increasingly hectic and stressful world, meditation can be invaluable in reducing stress and helping with the relaxation process. Practiced in various parts of the world for centuries, although largely not in the West until more recently, meditation can also help us find ourselves and make sense of the turmoil that is all too often associated with everyday living. Various studies have shown that meditation has a number of health benefits and substantially reduces stress. As a result of lower levels of stress and anxiety, many physical health improvements result, for example, through enhanced circulation and improved sleep. There are also clear links to emotional stress creating physical stress and subsequent ill health. Meditation has also been shown to relieve the pain associated with certain physical conditions.
This is a comprehensive professional qualification which is insurable and fully accredited with Embody (Embody). It is designed for those who wish to teach meditation to others, for example in evening classes and groups.
