What is Meditation?...
Put simply, Meditation is a natural process of connecting with your inner self and experiencing a deep sense of peace, relaxation & wellbeing. It provides relief from stress as it stills the mind, balances the emotions and rests the body. The term Meditation encompasses a broad variety of practices that promote a calm & peaceful state of ‘conscious awareness’.
In our modern hectic lives, we can have as many as 60,000 thoughts a day. This incessant background chatter that goes on in our heads is what is often referred to as a ‘Monkey Mind’. Our mind jumps from thought to thought in the same way a monkey jumps from tree to tree, pursuing one distraction after another. Meditation works to quieten the monkey mind, by bringing the awareness to the present moment. It is the art of simply 'being' (our natural state as 'human beings') rather than 'doing'. Meditation promotes a state of awareness where one effectively becomes an impartial observer of the thoughts without engaging in them. As the mind relaxes, the ever expanding silence & stillness between the diminishing thoughts instills a deep sense of calm, peace and wellbeing in the mind & body.
