Lifting up others is what Go Garrett County is all about!  A community that cultivates care is a healthier one. Research tells us that working to enhance the lives of others helps us to keep the well-being of all people at the forefront of our thinking. A healthy community starts with individual human beings who work hard to practice empathy. Empathy includes valuing other perspectives and people. It’s about perspective-taking and compassion.  Meditation is one way to cultivate empathy. Of course, meditation has been linked to benefits such as reduced symptoms of depression, reduced anxiety, and a decrease in chronic pain1 —it’s no surprise that so many of us are attempting to try.

We are honored that within the first few weeks of the program, Crystal registered and completed the baseline survey. She watched and read all the available content, referred friends, and earned enough reward points for her first choice prize.  The meditation pillow provides comfortable seating to help a person achieve mental clarity.  Some meditation programs call for people to sit, often cross-legged on the floor. For extended periods of time, this can be uncomfortable. This is why the pillow we chose can increase your comfort bringing with it the promise of ultimately increasing your compassion.

In our research, for valuable content, we came across this article that we believe is well worth the read. https://www.theatlantic.com/health/archive/2015/07/mindfulness-meditation-empathy-compassion/398867/
