Mindspace Practices is a secular practice with roots in the ancient meditation and contemplation traditions. Meditation is not the same as thinking; it can suspend thinking, reducing stressful reactivity and obsessive rumination, and thereby having the effect of calming the mind, the brain, and the body. Meditative, contemplative, insight, and awareness practices deliberately build both focused and open attention, emotional balance and kindness to self and others. Over two millenia of human experience in practicing meditation and mindfulness, and recent scientific studies conducted in the US, Canada and Europe, have proven the many benefits of these practices. This is the realm of Mindspace Practices.
