What is meditation?
Meditation is an experience of being aware in a peaceful state, a practice which offers individuals the opportunity to calm the mind, relax the central nervous system and reconnect with themselves.
Meditation calms the brain waves promoting a sense of inner peace and well-being. It allows us to access a naturally-occurring resting place. Encouraging the thoughts/mind to be in the present moment while remaining awake and aware.
In the fast pace of life we live in there is a problem of over active minds, this can lead to high levels of stress in the body and lower the immune system which can lead to stress related illnesses. The present moment is a place that most people's minds rarely experience. The mind is cluttered with either thoughts of the past which brings up uncomfortable feelings and thoughts of regret and frustration. Or thoughts of the future planning and worrying for the future which brings up feelings of anxiety and fear so the present moment is always lost. By using a blend of carefully designed skills and techniques to invite the mind to focus on the here and now, the mind begins to be calmer and the body is free to relax and with regular practice a sense of inner peace is experienced.
