theStillPlace.com has developed a transformational meditation technique to counter stress and help people find balance and harmony in their lives and harness their true potential for success, happiness and fulfilment. You will learn how to nurture and strengthen the positive core values of our shared humanity and balance the growing negativity in the world, whilst evoking the relaxation response to counter ever-increasing levels of stress and anxiety endured by so many.
Negativity leads to reacting adversely to a given situation, place or person which all too often is at the root of the vast majority of mental and emotional stress we all suffer. As we develop that connection to our inner core values and our present moment awareness through meditation and mindfulness practice, and as we learn to let go of trying to control the moment, we are far more likely to respond accordingly and in proportion to the event and not react irrationally or adversely which are very common forms of confrontation in human relationships. When we stop reacting to things in our life we are dissolving stress and not creating it.
It’s now scientifically proven that stress triggers the fight or flight response which releases the stress hormones Adrenaline and Cortisol throughout the body, to deal with the impending danger. Yet in the vast majority of situations we face day to day, there is no danger, and running on adrenaline and cortisol all day long and for extended periods of time is harmful to our physical health and mental wellbeing.
theStillPlace.com meditation practice evokes the relaxation response which is the body’s own safety mechanism for dealing with stressful situations and is a counter force to the fight or flight response triggered by stress. Science has also learnt that the relaxation response releases the feel-good hormones Oxytocin, Endorphin, Serotonin and Dopamine in the brain creating hormonal balance throughout the body by balancing our biochemistry, demonstrating the mind-body connection.
By making time in your daily routine to sit in the stillness of meditation and reduce the thinking mind to fewer or zero thoughts, and by daily evoking the relaxation response, you are doing the single most powerful thing you can do to counter stress and the many stress related dependencies we all suffer at some level. You will bring improved physical health and mental wellbeing back into your life as a deeper awareness unfolds.
