Does meditation work for women?

I have a little theory: meditation works differently on men and women.
We have different brains, hormonal balances, stress relief needs, and stress triggers. Yet we are told that the meditation experience should be the same.

Based on my research, the work I do with women, and personal experience, I disagree.

I am pro-meditation, but feel the ultimate experience of it differs between women and men. Still researching but let’s start thinking more deeply about this, so we can create choice for ourselves.

If you’re an expert or researcher in a field that could shed some light on this, please share with us.

    I love this theory, Juel because it makes so much sense. I use to run and that would be Zen time. New I find it in vacuuming the house. I don’t necessarily let my thoughts go but I feel peaceful.

      It would seem that us women Need movement. There’s little research on this right now, but I’m searching for it, working on it. In the meantime, it’s nice to see confirmation that I seem to be going in the right direction cause I haven’t had one response yet, or met one woman so far who doesn’t need some form of active meditation. Thanks for responding ^^

    Personally I can’t be at peace or meditate while in the house. My house is where I work…housework but still work. You indicated that in the video. There’s always something that has to get done and it’s very difficult to set time aside while you are sitting in the midst of it. I’m lucky I life by beautiful Lake Huron and find peace looking out onto the water…or ice depending on the season. I suggest finding your “spot” whether it be a forest, a creek, a park or even quiet spot in an art gallery. Remove yourself from the environment where you feel compelled to “get things done” before you can relax. Just a thought.
