Formal Meditation Training
Meditation is the art of being aware. It is a process of developing more awareness of our inner and outer world. With greater awareness comes greater insight and wisdom into oneself and life and the ability to move more skilfully through life and with ease.
Meditation involves learning how to calm the mind and body, to let go and just be, and to witness the coming and going of thoughts, emotions and sensations without being disturbed by them. The essential experience of mediation is one of deep relaxation, bliss, and self-realisation.
There is growing scientific evidence of the benefits of meditation. Meditation is known to have the following benefits:
– Calms the mind
