Benefits consolidating schools
These studies were based on different types of meditation, and I have included details, whenever relevant.Some effects, such as increased compassion and social bonding, are more salient as a result of specific meditation techniques (such as loving-kindness, which is a Buddhist meditation).
Berkshire Hills’ student population is set to level off at around 600 in the coming years (Monument was built for 570) but most student population numbers in Berkshire County are expected to decline.You will noticed that on many blogs and forums when people answer the question “why should I meditate” or “what are the benefits of meditation”, they do mention a few health benefits, and spiritual benefits, but leave a lot behind; or they often lack scientific evidence backing up what they say (like this one).There are over 3,000 scientific studies on the benefits of meditation, but I have not found any blog that compiles hundreds of researches into an organized article, so I decided to fill in the gap.“There are shelves and file cabinets filled with studies that go back 30 to 40 years.” The last consolidation study, Dillon said, was conducted in 2009 by consultant MGT of America, funded by a state grant; it was a $25,000 study initiated by the Berkshire Hills, Southern Berkshire and Lee-Tyringham districts.The study found that besides significant administrative and other cost savings of pulling the three districts together into one, more varied programming could be provided to students.In this massive article I have summarized several scientific discoveries on the benefits of meditation.
Over 100 studies were analyzed (some of which are in themselves analysis of other hundreds of studies), and categorised the findings into 76 benefits (divided into 46 subheadings). At the bottom of this post you will find a button to download a FREE PDF copy.
However, my understanding and personal practice is that any kind of authentic meditation will include most of these benefits, in one degree or another.
There is also evidence that the practice will be more beneficial for you if you find a technique that you like better.
Let’s put everyone together, some have said, thus avoiding a tax hike brought on by a full-scale renovation.
“Every so many years communities get together and talk about consolidation,” said Berkshire Hills Superintendent Peter Dillon.
