Meditation is simply the experience of the limitless nature of the mind when it ceases to be domineered by chatter. The mind can be naturally calm, clear and serene.
Meditation has been practiced in many cultures for thousands of years. Modern science is now discovering just how beneficial meditation is for our mental and physical health.
Thoughts and emotions are linked to our everyday lives. With meditative skills, emotions can simply pass through the mind, allowing us to discover a sense of unity and connection with ourselves, others and nature. We become more aware, more sensitive and more accepting.
