      Compassionate Mindfulness Meditation - BRM

      Regular meditators have been shown to have 'younger brains' than non meditators! Compassion based mindfulness meditation helps maintain brain function and supports wellbeing. It is secular, can be practised by anyone and is simple to learn. No previous experience or special training is necessary, just come and practice. This method requires meditators to sit comfortably, typically in a chair and to follow the instructions of the experienced teacher.  Brain Renewal Meditation (BRM) follows traditional meditation methods developed through the latest cognitive psychology and neuroscience research. It has long been established that aspects of brain health and physical wellbeing can be improved by regular meditation. BRM is simple and intuitive and includes three elements closely associated with a range of health benefits; compassion, mindfulness and awareness of both self and other. Unfortunately the performance of the human brain typically starts to decline before the age of 30, signs are apparent in our 40's and mild cognitive impairment and dementia can develop in later life. The evidence shows that regular meditation is linked to maintaining a younger healthier brain, this obviously can have great benefits throughout the lifecycle.   FAQs   Is it suitable for non meditators?
