Meditation & Mindfulness

MEDITATION

 

Meditation is a simple yet healthy practice that promotes balance in life. there is some confusion about what meditation is, and can conjure up  images of air and mystery and sitting for hours with crossed legs dressed in kaftans and hippy head scarves to mention a few. (although if you so wish to do so that is your choice :)). Meditation is simply a technique to be able to give the mind a rest and to attain a state of consciousness completely different to that of a normal waking state.. Stillness of the mind is something that would benefit us all. In our ever busy world it is too much mind chatter and it is difficult to switch off.. Many people turn to meditation to help them combat stress, and it works beautifully , and people can feel the difference alomost immediately. Meditation allows the mind to become released from agitation and to open up the individual to feelings of calmness and inner peace and a sense of serenity.
