Why meditate? Meditation helps me to respond with elegance instead of react. Sitting regularly helps me see that I host tension in my body, and helps me be more easeful in my skin. Meditation keeps me kind, more patient, more sweet with everyone around me, and helps me remember that a more relaxed internal state is better for everyone around me. May we all feel the healing calm of our practice.
