Meditation is Easy to Learn and the Benefits are Immense

Meditation continues to grow in popularity with solid science to back its health and wellbeing effectiveness.

 

Science now reveals that Meditating actually changes your brain, and with it, the way your body responds to stress.  We all live in a world where there are many ongoing stressors.

 

Meditation will transform your life.  It is not only a way to address mental, emotional and physical health issues (which for some can lead to a reduction or elimination of medication, and heal long standing health issues), it is a way to enhance awareness and spiritual growth.

What is Meditation and 

How Can it Help?

If you are new to Meditation, it is an active process of increasing awareness of your body, mind, feelings, sensations and your environment. It is about learning to create harmony and balance in your everyday life during and outside of the practice. A process of perpetually coming back to the present moment.
 
With practice you are able to string these "aware" moments together into a continuum - remaining present not only whilst sitting but all the time. The pathway to inner peace, harmony, increased awareness, and good health is dramatically accelerated through a regular practice of meditation.
 
It is a common belief, that you can’t meditate if you can’t stop thoughts.  This is far from the truth.  In the same way that waves are part of the ocean, thoughts are part of your mind. The key point is not to re-act or engage with your thoughts, which meditation teaches us.
