What is Meditation?
The word ‘meditation’ broadly describes different uses of the mind, from contemplation to concentration to reflection. It is a healing or returning to wholeness involving the use of powerful, truthful thoughts & feelings experienced directly benefiting your mental, emotional and physiological well-being.
The healing process of meditation begins with the direction of personal attention inwards and away from all external events and distractions.
Meditation slows down the electrical energy of the brain and the metabolism of the body. Muscular tension is reduced; blood pressure drops, and heart and breathing rates slow down. Where tension and anxiety have made the mind and body become agitated, meditation has proven to be a good method to experience relaxation and tranquility, strengthening one’s immune system response.
The root of suffering is attachment. You have created a space in your mind that holds a person or object as part of you. When that person or object is criticized, neglected or not with you, you feel pain in your mind and you experience a sense of loss. If you want to be happy, you must learn to love and appreciate while remaining free of dependancy.
