"A bell rings and we enter the life of the mind. We are lulled into a state of pure relaxation where nothing exists outside of us. We are gathered around in the West Conference Room and it is Thursday at 4 o’clock. We are listening to Edwige Gilbert, Wycliffe's meditation consultant...who offers us weekly mediation, as part of our fitness program here at Wycliffe, a gated community in Wellington Florida.
This program runs once a week and its benefits are these: we are learning to relax, reduce stress, and to be “mindful.” According to medical experts meditation benefits people with or without acute medical illness or stress. People who meditate regularly have been shown to feel less anxiety and depression. They also report that they experience more enjoyment and appreciation of life and that their relationships with others are improved.
I have to admit that much of this is new to me. I was never into this sort of therapy which originated in Asia in 500BC. I am the kind of person who spends my days on the computer, playing tennis and golf, watching a movie, or dinner and lunch with friends, but meditation: Never! And mindfulness, what is that? We offer many programs and activities at Wycliffe, and this is one that is quite valuable because it slows us down, and allows us to take a break from our active and busy, busy lives. Thank you Edwige!”
Warren Weinstein, Aerospace Flight Control Engineering Specialist
"We would like to thank Edwige for her recent presentation at the Foshay Cancer Center. Edwige's approach to reducing stress and changing negatives behaviors and thinking is vital to our patients' recovery. She is positive and optimistic, and provided our patients with an enthusiam for change. Edwige is a living example of how her program can change people's lives. Our patients learned specific techniques through breathing exercises, and visualization allowing them to identify and change their negative thought patterns. The participants found the presentation very helpful, and proceeded to ask Edwige how they could continue this work. Edwige's program can be useful to those struggling with many of life's challenges. She is an excellent coach, who utilizes her care and compassion to help others. Thank you Edwige!"
