Find Peace of Mind

Taught by Dr. John I. Stewart, MD and Bette Hodgins, BScPT and certified yoga teacher, Find Peace of Mind classes explore various meditation styles, and help students discover a meditation practice that is most effective for them in achieving a more calm and peaceful outlook on life.

Why Meditate?

 Job concerns. Financial worries. Health troubles. Aging parents. All of these frequently lead to stress, anxiety and insomnia. Small wonder many of us have minds that are agitated and on “red alert” much of the time.

Fortunately there is something we can all do to calm the mind and decrease stress.




Research has shown that a regular practice of meditation can alter the geography of the brain and actually promote a sense of peace and well-being. Along with that, the physiological benefits of greater relaxation can also result in decreased blood pressure, a slower heart rate and a more effective immune response.

If you are seeking ways that will help you cope with the stresses and strains of every day life, consider adding meditation as a self-help skill. Meditation employs your “inner guidance system”, helping you to acknowledge, accept and let go of thoughts and emotions that do not serve you. It is simple, effective and drug-free!

Patients of Medical Associates of Port Perry who are interested in using meditation as a tool to develop mindfulness about their thoughts and emotions. In so doing, they begin to cultivate some calm and peace in their interactions with inner and outer experiences are invited to attend a FREE 4 week program
