Ready to access your personal ability
to heal yourself?
Discover scientifically proven practices to transform your experience of stress, illness and pain and open up greater levels of comfort, ease and joy in just minutes a day.
You’re most likely committed to a holistic approach to your health but perhaps you’ve not yet fully unlocked your internal healing abilities, which can be highly effective in significantly increasing your physical and emotional wellbeing.
Recent studies in such respected publications as The Journal of Pain, The Journal of Neuroscience, The Journal of the American Medical Association and The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine are proving what meditation practitioners around the world have known for thousands of years:
The practice of mindfulness meditation can positively affect your full spectrum of health and wellbeing in a variety of ways, including boosting immunity, relieving chronic pain and disease, mitigating depression and bestowing greater peace and overall health.
Mindfulness meditation emerged from early Buddhist meditative traditions that influenced many of the world’s great philosophies, religions, and psychologies.
Essentially, the practice of mindfulness meditation heightens your awareness of whatever’s arising in your body and mind, as life unfolds from one moment to the next.
Just as sailors learn how to ride out the storms in the seas, you will learn how to skillfully navigate painful sensations rather than resisting or fighting them.
Gradually, you cultivate both calmness and insight into your inner world, your relationships and the world you live in, which in turn supports the deepening of wisdom and compassion.
Mindfulness practice can also help you restore and maintain a sense of personal balance and develop skills to avoid emotional and physical depletion.
Not only that, but with the practices of mindful meditation, you can completely shift your relationship to pain, stress and illness and in turn, experience transformations you might not believe are possible right now.
If you’re curious about what makes mindfulness meditation so unique and effective — and how it can help you transcend your stress, pain or illness — we invite you to join acclaimed teacher, author and mindfulness expert, Bob Stahl for a free hour-long introductory online session.
During Mindfulness for Healing: Using Meditation to Transform Your Relationship to Stress, Illness & Pain and Experience Greater Peace & Happiness, you’ll discover:
- What mindfulness meditation is and is not
- How to use mindfulness meditation to transform your relationship to stress, pain or illness
