Therapy Toronto Psychotherapy Definitions
- Meditation is a spiritual practice and emotional-intellectual discipline thousands of years old.
Strongest within the world-wide Buddhist tradition, where it takes many diverse forms, it is also to be found within the Christian, Hindu and Jewish traditions.
Among its many benefits are its capacity to reduce physical and emotional stress, awaken a clearer sense of personal issues and priorities, and increase a positive relaxed energy flow in other parts of everyday life.
It is now well-established that meditation will reduce hypertension and migraines.
In psychotherapy meditation is used to reduce anxiety, depression and anger-related problems.
