LET’S TRAIN OUR BRAINS TOGETHER ~
Group meditation (or group brain training) is one of the best ways to enhance and regulate a wellness practice. Our meditative work at the studio is geared towards the development of open awareness and compassion skills. These types of skills move us towards a more resilient and joyful state of mind. They also enhance our concentration, boost our immune system, decrease impulsivity, and can improve our relationships.
Meditating with a group of people is particularly useful for the majority of us who struggle to maintain a regular practice. Regardless of how stressed we are, knowing that brain training exercises are just as, if not more, beneficial than physical exercise doesn’t seem to make much of a difference. This is the beauty of doing our brain training together. We are better at developing positive habits and maintaining our goals when being accountable to others is a factor.
And there is this…
The loft-like space is in a renovated mill building and large windows overlooking the Assabet River bring in warm light throughout the day.
When we sit together in a circle there is a positive, healing energy that surrounds us. Yes, that sounds a little corny but this really is what is reported by participants.
And why wouldn’t it be true? When we sit together, all of us united in developing the skills to increase our kindness, compassion, and equanimity, of course it feels good.
