The Timeless Soul 

Well, according to my calendar it's been 10 months since I committed to a daily meditation practice. I am ongoingly charmed by the meditation benefits that reveal as I go about my ordinary doings. Like being less forgetful, finding my keys quicker (this is big for me), saying thank you and I am sorry with earnest. The latest came in during bedtime story with my son, I suddenly realized we haven't done our  "pull- out-my - grey-hair -for 5c- a- piece" ritual in a looong time. My son affirmed.
Increased research findings back up that meditation slows the aging process of the brain and that daily meditation preserve brain structures involved in memory formation,emotional regulation and voluntary movements amongst others.
The Alzheimer R&P foundation has a full page dedicated to a meditation technique, that we will practice in one of the upcoming meditation series.
Yet meditation offers much more than greying gracefully. I remember visiting my grandmother in the elderly home in her last days. Her immaculate peace of mind always impressed me particularly on this day, seeing the lady next to her being strapped down on a chair while resisting violently the fact that her body gave up walking.  My grandmother accepted her mounting limitations throughout the years and always carried with here these silent sage like qualities of faith and contentment. And I wonder was it her impeccable devotion to her intense daily prayers? Neuroscientist, Andrew Newberg, links meditation practices and faithful prayers to optimal brain health & functioning. According to his findings when we meditate or pray (to a benevolent God) a specific brainstructure called the Anterior Cingulate activates allowing us to experience love and compassion.
The long time purpose and goal of yoga was always aimed at meditation for ultimate detachment from identification with the world and the time sensitive body.  
Whether we are spiritual, scientific or religious, meditation and awareness practices lead us to that place that feels timeless, silent, ever youthful, colorful and loving ,we refer to as our Soul. 
I welcome you to journey with me through these new meditation programs,
let's be Soulful !!
