Meditation is a practise that has been used for centuries around the world. There are so many reasons why the psychological benefits of meditation can help empower women after DV. Meditation reduces stress related conditions such as anxiety and depression and helps to find balance and inner pease. When we meditate, the brain and nervous system undergo radical changes that cause the reduction and prevention of these conditions. Meditation increases stress resilience.
When we are able to switch off the sympathetic nervous system (responsible for the fight or flight response) and trigger the parasympathetic nervous system (responsible for the relaxation response) on a regular basis, we are training our bodies to rapidly recover from the impact of stress. Over time the brain learns how to stablise the autonomic nervous system in everyday life without having to switch into the fight or flight response when faced with challenges or demands. A perfect tool to deal with PTSD. Meditation is also proven to increase our level of positive emotions. There are a few reasons why this happens.
The simplest reason is the reduction of stress. When we reduce the stress in our system we return to our natural state of feeling calm, connected to ourselves and confident in meeting the challenges of life. When we experience this it feels good and it shows! Meditation in addition to all these amazing benefits helps to increase our focus and awareness of our present moment. When we meditate, we stimulate the pre-frontal cortex. This is the front part of the brain that is responsible for concentration, focus and problem solving among many other important functions.
As Wings of Destiny is primarily a support and empowerment service that is based on a holistic approach - this is the reason why we believe this type of MODALITY is ESSENTIAL for women to find empowerment and healing after DV. And because of its huge benefits and importance - we believe EACH and EVERY WOMAN should have access to such a sensory experience at no cost.
When we learn how to heal from trauma and abuse on a mind, body and soul level, our healing and empowerment becomes stronger and more sustainable long term.
