We started the Meditate for Your Memory Challenge
initiative back in 2021 to bring our community together and learn all about the brain-boosting benefits of Kirtan Kriya (KK). I am so excited to announce another week-long meditation challenge is coming up next month: February 19 – 23, 2024.
As our research has revealed, there are multiple health and healing benefits as seen in the chart below. Beyond that, however, is the development of a closer connection to your best self, your spiritual identity that we call Spiritual Fitness (SF).
SF is the evolution of higher levels of psychological and spiritual well-being. These attributes include acceptance, self-esteem, independence, persistent personal practice and growth, enhanced personal relationships, and the discovery of your purpose in life (PIL).
All of these improve your health and prevent memory loss, with PIL being an independent variable in and of itself to prevent Alzheimer’s disease.
The regular practice of KK also helps you develop markers of higher consciousness including patience, awareness, compassion, and surrender to your soul or spiritual self.
Ultimately, SF leads to unlimited love and altruism or the desire and ability to give to others without thought of reward for yourself.
Inner peace is the outcome, something we all need more of during these anxious and uncertain times.
Yours in Brain Health,
