Vipassana Meditation has the capacity for us to maximize our potential and to become more aware of the present moment. This simple and profound practice has been utilized for over 2500 years as a powerful agent of change. Buddhist contemplative practices can help us understand and transform unproductive coping strategies. Meditation allows individuals to expand their mental capacity, leading to more creativity, resilience and overall well being. This discussion will highlight practices that help to alleviate the impacts of stress and maximize both our mental and physical health in everyday life.
