The Benefits of Meditation in DBT

It’s no surprise that the practice of meditation has been around for hundreds of years, and as science and technology improve our knowledge of the mind, the benefits of meditation seem to become more and more significant. Marsha Linehan, who developed the DBT skills program we use at Soul to Sole, has noted the importance of meditation as part of a mindfulness practice. In fact, the mindfulness skills of DBT are psychological and behavioral versions of meditation practices from spiritual training practices. The incredibly fulfilling and powerful aspects of meditation have been well known and appreciated for centuries. They have a place throughout history in almost every faith around the world. The benefits of meditation are hard to boil down to a succinct list, but here are just a few:
