WHAT IS

CONSCIOUS HEALTH MEDITATION?

Conscious Health Meditation can be learned by anyone, even (especially) someone who believes they are too stressed, anxious, or skeptical to meditate.

  • Conscious Health Meditation does not require clearing the mind of thoughts or cessation of thinking.

  • Conscious Health Meditation triggers a physiologic effect in the brain and body, which allows the mind to settle down to a unique state of restful alertness. This unique state is up to 5 times more restful than sleep (based on our metabolic consumption of oxygen), and this profound rest allows the body to naturally dissolve its stresses.

  • Conscious Health Meditation is NOT a religion! People from any culture can experience its benefits, and practicing the technique requires no change in one's beliefs.

  • It is practiced twice a day, sitting comfortably with the eyes closed.

HOW WILL IT HELP ME AS A DOCTOR?

By neutralizing the effects of cortisol and adrenaline from our near-constant survival mode, Conscious Health Meditation re-wires the way your body handles stress.

  • By maximizing ‘adaptation energy’, you’ll become less reactive in high-stakes situations and more easily adaptable to changes and setbacks. (learn more about ‘adaptation energy’)

  • You’ll reconnect with your compassion and empathy, your clinical instincts, your patients, and yourself.

  • You’ll stay in the moment during a hectic day of patient care. 

  • You’ll have the energy and creativity to come up with impactful solutions to improve the healthcare system.

As a physician who is part of a busy, high stress practice, meditation has helped me immensely in managing that stress, coping with anxiety, and allowing me to enjoy my life in the moment. I am indebted to Jill for teaching me this practice, and I recommend meditation to all of my stressed out patients as well!
