Benefits of Group Meditation

Meditation establishes a secure connection between our internal and external worlds. It awakens the body and benefits all aspects of the conscious and subconscious layers of the mind. Health, well-being, and mental processes improve with meditation and, over time, the benefits increase steadily. If meditation works so well for an individual, perhaps that power is amplified in a group. Out of the numerous perks that meditation gives, a few are listed below.

1. Group Meditation helps in habit-formation
Many people find it challenging to maintain consistency with individual practice. However, when we meditate with others, there is a motivation to join the group on a specific time and day, and we cultivate the habit of dedicated daily practice.

2. Group activities are psychologically valuable:
We feel better when doing group activities because we create connections with others, tapping into the same silence and source of peace as our meditation mates can make one feel at peace, comfortable, supported and safe.

3. Group meditation improves social life
We know that humans are social animals, and isolation can distress us more than anything else. Participating in group sessions allows us to practice not only uninterrupted meditation but also form social connections, which in turn is an excellent boost for emotional health and overall wellness.

4. Feedback availability:
In group meditation we not only get to learn from other people’s experiences, but to get useful advice. We may find it rewarding to exchange feedback with each other about our improvement and gain valuable insight into the effect of meditation over some time.

5. Group meditations at work: This can promote interpersonal connections among employees and supervisors, and foster empathy and acceptance in the team as a whole.

When we meditate in groups, we create an environment of acceptance and belonging, we make friends and share something more than a ‘good morning’ like it usually happens in our workplaces.
