Why Meditation?

Stress is the most significant factor that affects wellbeing, particularly in densely populated urban settlements. Through meditation, stress is reduced greatly. As individuals change, members of the community are also affected. Since 2014, our meditation programs have trained over 1,500 children in Kibera. 

Numerous studies have demonstrated the effects of meditation:

Increase in moral development, prosocial attitudes, compassion

Increase in creativity, positive self-identity, motivation

Increase in academic performance and learning

Increase in attention regulation, concentration, memory

Increase in stress reduction, cardiovascular health, Pain management, 

Improved immune system

Decrease in anxiety, depression, etc.
