Though no one can go back
and make a brand new start,
Anyone can start now
and make a brand new ending.
Classes with Dr Lisa Shortridge
Meditation is exercise and training for our minds, just as going to the gym is training for our bodies. In these busy times it is essential that we learn to quieten our minds so we may stop and rest deeply.Regular meditation promotes deep inner feelings of peace and relaxation and mindfulness processes allow us to learn more about ourselves.
Regular practice of meditation is known to reverse the physiological response to stress and results in better sleep, improved memory, relief of pain, more energy, a stronger immune system and a general feeling of wellbeing.
"It is predicted that by the year 2030 depression will be a bigger burden on the health care system than heart disease" (Dr Craig Hassed , Monash Medical School)
