Getting Split Ready Episode 10: Keeping Clarity – The Benefits of Meditation During Divorce

Meditation is undoubtedly and indisputably beneficial to its practitioners. While the specific techniques and intensity can vary substantially, the benefits remain constant. These benefits include stress reduction, positive mood and outlook, better sleep and clearer decision making. These can help in every day life, but they can be especially helpful during divorce.

Join us for a discussion with Patrick Kalscheur from Kalscheur Conscious Family Law about how he has integrated meditation into his practice and the positive impact that doing so has brought.
