Meditation session with Dr Phil Parker.
Phil is an expert at helping you become calm, still and developing self-compassion. You can discover this by just listening to this free seminar. For more details on the series go to this page.
This supports the earlier episode on developing self-kindness.
Self- kindness and self-compassion has been shown to have important positive effects on your wellbeing and health- and makes you kinder to others.
Phil is an expert in the mind-body connection. As a result, he has spent a lot of time developing ways to teach people how to calm down and reduce their stress response.
The stress response is very important for keeping us well but if it is switched on for long periods of time it has damaging consequences for our body. It affects our immune system, blood sugar levels, our ability to think clearly, and our blood pressure, heart rate and breathing rate. It also changes levels of important neurotransmitters related to mood, hormone levels, and wellness.
So learning how to master the ability to become calm could be one of the most important things you ever do. Just by listening to this meditation session, you will become calmer. But even more importantly you’ll also learn how to develop a deepening sense of calm throughout your day each time you listen to it.
