Discover the transformative power of a daily meditation practice with these tips from a seasoned Buddhist practitioner. With guidance on techniques, mindfulness exercises, and the philosophy of meditation, you’ll learn how to cultivate a consistent practice and unlock the profound benefits of this ancient tradition. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced meditator, these practical tips will help you deepen your practice and cultivate inner peace and tranquility. For those of us who have difficulty sitting and concentrating for any period, we will also include a slow-moving and gentle open-eyed moving meditation – Tai Chi Chih.

Both meditation and Tai Chi Chih offer a wealth of tangible benefits for both physical and mental health. With regular practice, they can reduce stress and lower cortisol levels, improve focus, increase positive and negative emotions, lower blood pressure, and improve sleep. Additionally, Tai Chi Chih can improve balance and coordination, reducing the risk of falling and injury; it helps to improve flexibility and range of motion in the joints. Regular Tai Chi Chih practice can boost the immune system and reduce inflammation, offering a tangible path to improved health and well-being.

Regular meditation and Tai Chi Chih practice can enhance overall well-being, including physical, emotional, and mental health.

Everyone is welcome to join. You don’t need to be a Buddhist to meditate!
