Meditation has decades of research showing its positive features and thousands of practitioners who can give first-hand accounts of how meditation has changed their lives. But one of the common questions that Stars of Light® gets is ‘how can online meditation benefit me?’.
This is a great question as meditation online is relatively new, or, as new as the Internet and video capabilities. And though Stars of Light® offers both live and online meditation courses, there are benefits that online can give, even beyond traditional benefits of meditation.
#1: Online Meditation Courses Help You Reduce Your Stress Anywhere, at Any Time
We all have stress in our lives, whether it originates from work, family, hobbies, or classes – there is always so much to do.
However, by practicing meditation through an online meditation course, you not only can reduce your stress levels and learn how to more appropriately deal with stress, you can do it from anywhere, at any time.
Often getting to a meditation class can add stress to your life, as it’s yet another thing to ‘squeeze in’, however, with online meditation you can skip the travel time and traffic and meditate from anywhere.
#2. Online Meditation Can Increase Your Sense of Well-Being
Online meditation follows the principles that traditional, or live, meditation does as well – which means it can help increase your sense of wellbeing. And because you can practice from the comfort of your home, or even your office, you can feel calmer and more at ease in your familiar setting.
Stars of Light® ultimately guides you to become your own guru, so you can walk yourself through the steps of our meditation at any time, anywhere you need it.
#3. Meditation Can Increase Your Empathy & Connectedness
Even though online meditation takes you out of the studio and you are not in the same room with others, you can still gain increased feelings of connectedness and empathy. You are still in a class setting, still able to speak to and engage with your online meditation course teacher, and still able to connect with yourself and others on a deeper level.
Whether your meditation is online or in-person, growing your own self-awareness, empathy, and connectedness to both yourself and others are positive outcomes that Stars of Light® has seen again and again.
#4. Online Meditation Courses Can Improve Your Focus
We all have so much going on in our minds, it can be difficult to focus sometimes – on work, on school, on our daily duties and needs, but online meditation courses are designed with focus and peace in mind.
We use a special guided meditation stair-stepping structure to lead you through the four Levels that Stars of Light® offers, helping you connect with yourself, understand yourself, and focus your mind more as we continue together.
Online meditation can help your focus just as much as live meditation can, especially when practiced regularly.
#5. Online Meditation Can Even Improve Your Relationships
Just as online meditation can help you connect with yourself better, it can also help you connect with others in a more empathetic, calm, and intentional way. By working on stress-reduction and management, empathy, and even focus, your relationships can flourish and strengthen.
Stars of Light® Online Meditation Courses Are Meant for Everyone – Because They Can Benefit Everyone
Stars of Light® knows that life is busy and full, exciting and stressful, which is why we wanted to create a space for both live and online meditation that can help those who are near and far, with the ability to practice in-person and those who can join digitally.
