Uma Mullapudi, a trainer at the Heartfulness Institute of Beavercreek, a non-profit educational organization for wellness and training, said classes are free of charge at their locations. She also said classes are offered at Miami Valley Hospital, Kettering Cancer Center, Soin Medical Center and the main hospital at Kettering Hospital, as well as churches and universities in the area.
“Harvard Research has proven that three things produce happiness within the brain: exercise, meditation and prayer which means taking care of the body, mind and spirit,” said Mullapudi.
She said until you take care of the mind, you can’t take care of the body. With all the different religious beliefs, spirit beliefs, and other belief systems, meditation is able to tap into the silent and prayerful state in our heart because the mind is disturbed.
If one person meditates in the house, the calmness spreads inside the house. If one person is sad, it affects the entire family, if you are happy, it affects the family and if you are peaceful, it affects the family.
Scientific research proves that if there are 100 people meditating in an area, within a five mile radius there would not be negativity. It’s like in a dark room, you light a candle and there’ll be light.
