Meditation provides self awareness, calm and a sense of perspective
The benefits of meditation on mental health are impressive and have been demonstrated in multiple peer reviewed studies.
What is Meditation?
Defined as to think deeply or focus one’s mind for a period of time – we encourage the practice of meditating to aid in the resilience-building capabilities of our clients. Meditation aids the training of the mind to have a sense of self-awareness, as well as creates opportunities to gain a healthy sense of perspective. Meditating is known for being an effective practice to clear the mind and learn how to process your thoughts and feelings in a calm perspective. You may find that through meditation you start to learn and observe your feelings as they are happening, and eventually learn how to understand why you feel a certain way and how to improve these feelings.
For as little as 10 minutes a day and with regular practice you can expect to experience:
- Improved impulse control
- Improved concentration
- Better focus and clarity
- Improved mood stability
- Increased ability to handle stress
- Peace and acceptance
- Improved concentration
- Self awareness and a sense of perspective
- Increased cardiovascular strength and immunity
There are many styles of holistic approaches to meditating, we will identify the one most suited to your personality and show you how to make it a beneficial part of you personal and professional life.
Whilst traditional meditation may not be for you, our team can find different practises and ways in which you can indulge in your own form of meditation. This can range from early morning beach walks, horse riding, hiking, yoga or personal training.
I travelled from Los Angeles to Istana Jiwa on the recommendation of a friend and in my mind, it was a leap into the unknown. I was completely unprepared for how cosmopolitan, competent, professional and caring the staff were. From the moment I was met at the airport to the moment I left I felt cared for and understood. This was an utterly life-changing experience, I never thought I would say I loved going to rehabilitation but I actually did.Maggie, LA
For my sins I have been to a few treatment centres around the world, nothing comes close to Istana Jiwa. I went deeper and achieved more in therapy than I have ever gone before, I made peace with meditation and yoga - both things I have resisted in the past and both I now practise in daily life. I feel transformed, thank you.David, London
I went to Istana Jiwa to reset my mind and change the way I was living. Stress had got the better of me, I was partying too hard and I was close to blowing up my career and losing my family. Amazingly I found some like minded souls in the Istana Jiwa team, people who had lived my life in the corporate arena, who understood me and helped me recalibrate my life. I now feel better than ever before, and I even gave up smoking there!Simon, HK
I started with Istana Jiwa in pretty ordinary shape; marriage had collapsed and I was self medicating with anything I could find to suppress the deep sense of despair and depression. The program transformed me – physically and emotionally. I spent 60 days in the program working on finding myself and I left feeling genuine hope and a real fortitude to tackle life again.L, Melbourne
