A state of balance
In streamline meditation we don’t do anything with the body except sit in a comfortable chair, however, when the mind settles down during this purely mental process, the body follows suit and relaxes into quite a profound level of rest.
This unique experience of a still mind, in a still body, returns the system to a point of balance, where it can release deeply accumulated stress and tension.
Psychologists tell us that 80% of all disease today are stress related. We also know that when we feel stressed we dont feel good mentally or physically. In fact too much stress and worry can makes us quite ill. This tells us that if we want to enjoy better health and a greater sense of well-being we need to reduce our stress levels and increase our ability to cope.
Streamline Meditation is incredibly effective in dropping stress levels while improving our resilience to new stresses.
