On Tuesday evening, January 15th, 2013, Master Johwa delivered a presentation on Brain Health to approximately 70 participants at the Westfield Public Library. Master Johwa first explained that habits and thoughts can indeed influence the brain’s health.
If we are experiencing conflict with others or even within ourselves, he specified, we create a kind of torture for ourselves to endure. As much as we dislike this, he clarified further; it feels as though we cannot stop ourselves from engaging in it. The audience members agreed with all that had been described, but many were unsure if there was a way to really address these habits and to rid these conflicts from their lives. The audience members then learned and actively applied three practical meditations to help keep thoughts and emotions in a calmed state.
As Master Johwa progressed through introducing these various meditations, it was apparent by the smiles on audience members faces and from their enthusiastic responses to their experiences, that the meditations were in fact easing stress away from these participants. Master Johwa then issued a challenge to the audience to try these mediations once a day for twenty one days and he guaranteed their effectiveness on their overall well-being.
Many audience members truly enjoyed the prospect of carrying-out this challenge. They voiced that the meditations were personally satisfying and yet simple to do. Once conflicting thoughts and emotions are neutralized, explained Master Johwa, you can experience a better quality of life. He illuminated that having this kind of practice daily will indeed enhance our brain’s health and will even balance our physical body’s systems of blood flow, energy flow, and hormone flow. It was evident that several participants felt empowered and inspired by what was presented that evening. Countless asked follow-up, more detailed questions about how long they should do it for and at what time of day.
