Mindfulness is the simple act of being present and engaged with whatever you are doing at the moment. You can practice it anywhere and anytime. There are numerous benefits to being mindful including increased concentration and decreased stress.
Meditation is an intentional practice that can help one find inner peace and expand awareness. One of the wellness benefits of meditation is that it can calm the nervous system which is helpful during this health crisis.
Like yoga there are many types of meditation, each with specific goals and benefits. So you need to find the one that works well for you.
At WayPoint we offer meditation as a spiritual practice. These guided meditations invite people to become more receptive, more open and trusting of what’s moving deep within them as they are guided to listen to their deepest and most authentic voice. It's a form of contemplative prayer, a way of seeking a deeper connection with God (Divine, Voice of Love, Mystery), and a time of reflection.
Our online meditation classes are perfect for the beginner or those who have been meditating for a while. Hope you’ll join us Tuesdays at 7:00 pm!
