You will find out about science- proven incredible health benefits of meditation, what is happening in your brain, how the biochemistry of the body changes as a result of meditation and how to integrate the simple practices into you everyday life.
You will also discover a variety of meditation techniques including pranayama (breathing techniques) in meditation, so that you can find the ones that work best for you and practice them during the 3-day immersion.
