Meditation

Meditation practised regularly will lead you to a deeper level of relaxation and contemplation. Research has scientifically proven that meditation is a safe and simple way to balance your physical, emotional, and mental state and its countless values have been known and practised for thousands of years. More and more doctors promote the benefits of meditation to cure many stress related illnesses. Meditation really means relaxation – conscious relaxation, chosen relaxation. These are words that are more universally understood, more comfortable. Constantly working toward the goal of discovering your own ability to reach a state of serenity, you will learn to meditate.

 

Meditating is actually easier than you might imagine. Most of us have dabbled in meditation by participating in conscious relaxation. Maybe during an exercise class or to manage pain at the dentist or anxiety before a test. We start by paying attention to our breathing. The practical effort to focus completely on our breathing takes our minds away from the "mind clutter" that constantly tries to invade our mind. With repeated effort the goal of clearing your mind – to think of nothing, does occur and the process of meditation takes on its own energy. The result is peace, serenity, and calmness, eventually opening yourself to new insights.
