MEDITATION

WHY DO IT

WHAT IS IT

There are many things in life that are beyond our control. However, it is possible to take responsibility for our own states of mind – and to change them for the better.  Meditation is a means of transforming the mind, to develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and a calm seeing of the true nature of things
Meditation is a practice where an individual trains the mind or induces a mode of consciousness, either to realize some benefit or for the mind to simply acknowledge its content without becoming identified with that content

DR. CHOPRA SAYS

In a world rife with never-ending fast fixes, crash diets, and get-rich-quick schemes, it’s nice to know there is a proven practice that really can change your life (or at least bring about dramatic effects) in just a little time in each day.
Yogis and doctors both agree: meditating—even just a few minutes of deep breathing—relaxes the brain. We feel as though we can't afford the time to meditate, but the truth is we can't afford not to.
 

Meditation is best begun with the guidance of a teacher who has practiced it for some years.  The teacher can encourage, inspire and energize you on your inward journey into blissful transcendence.

Arundhati Dasi has been practising meditation for over ten years and is available for group training or individual coaching.

HOW TO MEDITATE 

It may be done sitting, or in an active way—for instance, walking, or daily awareness. Prayer beads or other ritual objects are commonly used during meditation in order to keep track of or remind the practitioner about some aspect of that training.
