What is Meditation for Health?

McRae Health, run by David McRae, provides teaching, guidance and training in MEDITATION for HEALTH  in the Coffs Harbour region, and mid-north-coast of New South Wales. Learning is accessed through individual consultation and small classes.

Published research and many personal stories have shown that meditation can create real improvement with illnesses and health areas including:

  • Improving immune system function
  • Stress management, stress relief, many stress-related conditions
  • Chronic pain & headaches
  • Anxiety, depression and related conditions
  • Heart and vascular disease
  • Poor sleep and difficulty relaxing
  • Managing cancer and its effects
  • Therapeutic meditation is often described as an alternative cancer treatment; but this is not a good description. Dr Ian Gawler (author of You Can Conquer Cancer) does not describe it as “alternative”. It is quite simply a valuable health promoting practice that can be used alongside any combination of standard or unconventional cancer treatments a person is undertaking. Or for that matter, if a person is not taking any treatment at a particular time.

Meditation for Health is right at the heart of the great, under-used potential of Patient Self-Help. While our media gives us so much information on medical breakthroughs and the importance of visiting your doctor for everything, a person’s own contribution to getting well is at least 50% of the task. Nothing is more central in Patient Self-Help than how we deal with our own mental and emotional state-of-mind. This is where Meditation for Health can be so powerful.

While meditation is ancient and comes in various forms, as a health practice it means a way of focussing your mind that leads you towards stillness, ease and mindfulness. Your practice can be, and should be adapted and tailored to suit your temperament, lifestyle and needs.

David teaches in individual consultations and small group classes, courses and other formats to suit individuals or organizations. His Meditation for Health teaching introduces you to a range of the most practical, effective meditation techniques and methods. In both groups and one-to-one consultation there is practice time, discussion and feedback aimed at finding what works, and gets results for you.
