One question that Cosmos Tree representatives often receive is, “Do you have a Guided Meditation?” This expresses the wish to participate in a Meditation “where all I have to do is show up and follow the instructions as the Meditation goes along.” In other words, “Is it easy?”

Yes, the Meditation For Health And Well-Being, Lovingly created by Dr. Roger B. Lane, Cosmos Tree Founder and Director, is indeed easy to follow – whether in-person at Cosmos Tree’s Home Center in New York City, at Its Regional Centers around the country and in Mexico and/or via a CD or MP3 available for purchase on the Web site.

But This Meditation is a lot more than that. And the more you “work” It the more It “works.” It is life-altering. For this frequent participant and Meditation Host, it is like a great big vacuum cleaner going “in there” throughout my body – the process is a Spiritual “Inner” One – and vacuuming out negativity. That negativity is the thoughts and feelings that I have chosen to take and retain “inside” rather than to leave them “outside.”

Which brings us to the subject of “stress.” Many who attend this very popular Meditation do so to let go of stress. Stress, according to Dr. Lane, is negativity that is outside of us that we have chosen to take “inside” of us. The result of this choice is disease or dis-ease. One New York City doctor, who runs a large, well-known practice, was given the opportunity to make the Meditation available to his patients, responded, “If I did that I would go out of business!” This doesn’t mean you don’t see a doctor, of course. It does mean that that this Meditation is a powerful and key Tool for maintaining Health And Well-Being.

It’s no wonder then that the Meditation For Health And Well-Being is Cosmos Tree’s most popular offering for seniors as part of the organization’s Program of Visiting Meditations.

The general benefits of meditation have been widely studied for over 40 years at dozens of institutions from Harvard Medical School to New York University. A neuroscientist at Harvard Medical School found that long-term meditating was associated with shrinking of the portion of the brain associated with anxiety, fear and stress. Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine found that stress-reducing meditation significantly reduced the severity of congestive heart failure in addition to improvement in quality of life and depression. A 2016 Carnegie Mellon study showed significant reduction in markers in the blood for inflammation, with changes in the brain a key contributor.

If you would like to avail yourself of this Meditation, the schedule at the Home Center in New York City is the third Tuesday of every month at 8:15 pm. The doors open at 7:45 pm for those who want to come and get quiet (another important benefit).

Yes, all you have to do is show up! It is open to all. It is free of charge with a Suggested Donation of $5. It is also offered once a month, on the fourth Tuesday of each month, also at 8:15 pm on the West Side of New York City.
