About The Event
What people are saying about their meditation experience:
“By sitting still for 5 to 30 minutes a day, I’ve learned I shouldn’t believe everything I think, and that’s made such a difference in my ability to lead and parent. As an author, I spend quite a bit of time at the computer, and thus, my neck and shoulders can be tight. I realized after about a month of meditation how much more relaxed I was physically. Now, while I write, I take breaks and meditate for five minutes to increase my stamina and ability to think creatively.” — Christina Harbridge
“The word ‘overwhelmed’ has started to disappear from my vocabulary. I wear many hats in an emerging technology field and at fast-paced growing company. There will never be a day where I’m not faced with challenges. Meditation has changed the way I respond to that stress. Since I started practicing regularly, my mental response to stressors is no longer panicked and I don’t have the same physical response either. I find myself naturally reverting to breathing and other meditation techniques without thinking about it. The cool, calm, balanced demeanor is a win, not only in my personal and professional life, but a win for the company and my colleagues who are looking to me for an example and support.” — Brittiany Broadwater
“Meditation helps me shut out the anxious voices or external and literal sounds. Today, I’m in southern Maine, and meditation means concentrating on the crashing waves. When I’m home, it can be the rustling trees, blue skies or clouds. It’s quite literally looking at the beauty of the bigger picture and being able to focus on that instead of the stress of life.” — Rachel Weingarten
“Meditation gives me a crucial mental focus and clarity that allows me to be more efficient at work. My partner and I meditate together and it’s given us some great quality-time together, offering us a new depth of intimacy in the interactions between actual meditation sessions. I also make more conscious decisions in everything from my eating habits to life-altering decisions, rather than moving through life triggered by my past and reactions.” — Tiffany Cruikshank
“Meditation helps me surrender more to what is instead of worrying what should be happening. My sense of touch, taste and smell is heightened. It’s amazing what good ideas come when I let my thoughts be and allow pure inspiration in. I am not trying to control my thoughts, but just allowing what needs to filter in come.” — Steffi Black
