September – Moving Into the Space In Between
Between the stimulus and the response there is a space and within that space lies our power, freedom and peace. ~ (Viktor Frankl Author of Man’s Search for Meaning.)
Very often, when we feel depleted, overwhelmed, over stimulated or even simply fatigued, the very best thing we can do for ourselves is simply stop and pause.
The practice of meditation is itself, a practice of stopping and pausing. This meditation will guide you to move deeply into the quiet, peaceful, stillness of the space in between the stimulus and the response and there, find ease, nurturing, and clarity. You will also learn to cultivate a greater awareness of and connect with the many opprotunities you have in your day to pause and drop into the space in between whenever you need to.
Did you know that, while meditation is a very relaxing practice, it offers much more in addition to relaxation? With regular practice, meditation helps us to actually change our habits and move away from living in fear, anger or anxiety and move into living in a calmer and more thoughtful and balanced way.
In addition, meditation offers these benefits as well:
• A quieter (and therefore more focused, resilient and creative) mind
• Greater mental and emotional stability and clarity
• Lowering blood pressure and reducing headaches, fatigue and even back aches due to
• Sleeping better and more deeply and waking feeling more rested.
• Boosting the immune system and helping the body to fight off disease.
