Mindfulness meditation can, with proper instruction and practice, reduce all of the following, as has been scientifically proven: Hypertension, Cardiac arrhythmia’s, Pain, Insomnia Allergies, PMS, Menopause Symptoms, Infertility and Boosts Your Immune System.
Mindfulness can prevent a lot of pain and stress. Google, Facebook and even Coca Cola have found that when they run these courses for their staff productivity and creativity increased.
Learning to Exhale was established in Nov 2012 to address a deep need in the community and society as a whole to deal effectively with stress, depression, suicide risk and spiritual emergency. The social enterprise is now running courses in MINDFULNESS across Mayo and will soon be active in Sligo.
