Welcome to the Meditation Summit
By now, you’re probably well aware of the benefits of meditation. Science continues to provide us with more evidence of what the world’s spiritual traditions have known for years: Meditation can positively impact every single area of our lives.
So why do so many of us struggle to make time for this powerful practice? Why do we so often wonder if we’re doing it right? Or feel as if something more should be happening?
Perhaps you feel like you should be meditating, but you just get overwhelmed when it comes time to actually start. With so many different approaches available, how do you know which is right for you?
Or maybe you’ve been meditating on and off for years. You’ve experienced the benefits of meditation first hand, but your practice never seems to last. As life gets busier, your meditation practice seems to be the first piece to go—just when you need it the most.
Or perhaps you’ve had a committed practice for years. You recognize many of the wonderful benefits meditation has brought to your life, but you thought there would be more. Where is this “aha” moment that other people keep talking about? Why haven’t you experienced the flashes of insight you were promised? How can you finally go deeper into your practice?
With so many entry points into the world of meditation and so many obstacles to practicing in our daily lives, it’s no wonder many of us need more guidance and support in order to sustain and deepen our practice.
That’s why we’re bringing together 30 of the world’s leading meditation teachers in one place.
Throughout the Meditation Summit, you’ll have the opportunity to learn with the world’s most respected teachers from both sacred and secular traditions. You’ll be able to dive into the approaches that may work best for you, learn how to sustain a practice in your daily life, and explore the next steps for bringing more depth to your current practice.
What is health?
The word health refers to a state of complete emotional and physical well-being. Healthcare exists to help people maintain this optimal state of health.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), healthcare costs in the United States were $3.5 trillionTrusted Source in 2017.
However, despite this expenditure, people in the U.S. have a lower life expectancy than people in other developed countries. This is due to a variety of factors, including access to healthcare and lifestyle choices.
Good health is central to handling stress and living a longer, more active life. In this article, we explain the meaning of good health, the types of health a person needs to consider, and how to preserve good health.
In 1948, the World Health Organization (WHO)Trusted Source defined health with a phrase that modern authorities still apply.
“Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.”
In 1986, the WHOTrusted Source made further clarifications:
“A resource for everyday life, not the objective of living. Health is a positive concept emphasizing social and personal resources, as well as physical capacities.”
This means that health is a resource to support an individual’s function in wider society, rather than an end in itself. A healthful lifestyle provides the means to lead a full life with meaning and purpose.
In 2009, researchers publishing inThe LancetTrusted Source defined health as the ability of a body to adapt to new threats and infirmities.
They base this definition on the idea that the past few decades have seen modern science take significant strides in the awareness of diseases by understanding how they work, discovering new ways to slow or stop them, and acknowledging that an absence of pathology may not be possible.
