Meditation is the act of calming your mind by focusing on your inner world.
When you meditate regularly, you become consciously self-aware and more centered, less likely to react quickly to the stresses around you.
There are many different techniques you can follow from traditions around the world. For example -
guided meditations, mindfulness, moving meditation, visualisation, chanting, praying, zen, vipassana, yoga... and so on...
It's not complicated, it's just a matter of finding the one that feels right for you.
It's definitely a personal thing.
I would recommend keeping a diary/journal of your thoughts and experiences you have during your meditations, to help you along your journey.
There are many Holistic (meaning to treat the ' Whole' - mind, body & spirit) benefits to Meditating regularly.
These include -
reducing anxiety, lowering blood pressure, improving sleep, pain relief, better decision making, reducing stress, improving emotional stability, lengthening attention span, improving memory loss, generating kindness, helping to combat addictions...
Which have all been scientifically proven.
In the UK, in my healing centre, I ran a weekly drop-in meditation session. I never knew how many people were going to turn up and it was a different theme every week. It was a great way to take some much needed 'time out' and meet new people.
These last few years have been very busy for me, i've had to adapt my day to make sure I spend just a few minutes at least meditating/relaxing.
Whether you are a beginner or had a lot of experience, it doesn't matter.
You can certainly learn from meeting different people and discussing your experiences with them.
You are welcome to come and relax, learn and join in any meditation sessions we will be offering here at Jardin d'Eve.
