5 Steps to Starting a Meditation Practice

New in Personalized Living Webzine:

Quoted Text
Dr. D’Adamo has been suggesting daily meditation to his patients since he began practicing medicine.  He knew that his patients that meditated on a regular, or semi-regular basis seemed healthier than his patients who didn’t.  Now, a study out of Harvard Medical School discovered that practitioners of mediation and other relaxation methods had more active “disease fighting genes” than those who practiced no form of relaxation.

I'd like to hear something about the patients that did Tai Chi or Yoga as part of their Stress Protocol. Any statistics?

No statistics, just my perspective, for what it's worth.

Tai Chi and Yoga, if done consciously, are a type of meditation - moving meditation.  Holding the mind steady in a way that we don't run after every thought that comes into our heads has also been described as 'mindfulness'.

If a person works better with this type of practice than sitting for a period of time, then by all means, it should be practiced.  There is a difference between a mindful, calm and centered moving meditation approach, compared to the atmosphere in a noisy health club, with loud music, chit-chat, laughter and a social-type of approach to the class.  Not wrong, just not meditation.



Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me not pass you by in quest
of some rare and perfect tomorrow.
