MEDITATION


Dr. Peter Amato has taught meditation to thousands of people worldwide.

Many years ago, he was ordained as a Lay Monk in the Mahayana Tradition of Buddhism. His Ordination Teacher was Nobel-Peace Prize Laureate, Zen Author, and Poet, Thich Nhat Hanh. Dr. Peter Amato studied MBSR directly with Jon Kabat-zinn, many years ago.

There are over 30 RCT studies suggesting the program offers benefits. Mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) is an eight-week evidence-based program that offers secular, intensive mindfulness training to assist people with stress, anxiety, depression, and pain.

However, the fruit comes from ongoing daily practice over a lifetime.

Here are some specific examples of overall health improvements anchored in Research resulting from ongoing Meditation Practice:


Positive emotions and well-being – Research shows that meditation practitioners have 5 times greater clarified gamma output (positive feelings like love, happiness; well-being).


Life expectancy – Mortality rates from various fatal heart conditions were cut by 48% with regular practice of meditation found a key study with patients suffering from cardiovascular disease.

Brain coherence – Meditating leads to increased frontal coherence — that is, more harmonious and efficient brain activity — as measured during various computer tasks and eyes-closed rest.

Good sleep – Lower levels of stress mean better sleep, don’t they? Taking up meditation regularly, at least twice a day, is a natural home remedy against chronic insomnia (sleeplessness).

Distress & coping – Lower blood pressure, decreased psychological distress, increased coping in people at risk for hypertension, a study with meditating college students found.

Stress and anxiety relief – Arguably the single biggest benefit of meditation is a more balanced nervous system and hormonal levels which eliminate any excessive flight-or-fight responses by our body. In other words, meditation has been shown to naturally lead to a calmer life.

Heart diseases and ailments – Improved functional capacity for patients with various heart conditions/heart failure. Risk of heart disease cut by 30%; mortality from stroke decreases by 48%.

Normalized blood pressure – Another crucial benefit of meditation is that it reduces blood pressure on average by 7 mm/Hg. It also thus reduces such conditions as heart attack, aneurysm, artery damage, kidney failure, etc.

Alcohol, nicotine, and drug addiction – Meditation significantly reduces addiction to and use of alcohol, cigarettes, and drugs. With regular practice, the abstinence strengthens naturally.
