About the Event
Everyone is in need of a smile. I know I am! There is something that is so raw and contagious about seeing others smile. But what makes us smile and what effect does smiling have on us?
When you smile to yourself, you become your own best friend. Connecting with this inner friend helps you feel grounded, settled, and stable no matter what else goes on around you. Finding that harmony within yourself cultivates contentment.
Smiling releases endorphins, natural painkillers, and serotonin, three neurotransmitters that make us feel good from head to toe. Consider smiling a natural drug. These natural chemicals elevate our mood, relax our body and reduce physical pain. Studies have shown that people who smile often live an average of 8 years longer.
The Inner Smile meditation is a popular Taoist practice in which we use our breath to smile inwardly to each of the major organs of our body, activating the energy of loving-kindness within us. A technique used for thousands of years by Taoists for healing.
In this weeks forum we will look at how we can awaken our compassion and really smile from within, take this smiling energy into the rest of our day.
