A Reminder at the American River
The mind and body practice that is known as meditation has evidence of improving psychological balance, increasing calmness and physical relaxation, healing the body, and enhancing overall health and well-being.
There are many types of meditation, but most have four elements in common: a quiet location with as few distractions as possible; a specific, comfortable posture (sitting, lying down, walking, or in other positions); a focus of attention (a specially chosen word or set of words, an object, or the sensations of the breath); and an open attitude (letting distractions come and go naturally without judging them).
