What is Meditation?

Meditation is a mental discipline by which one attempts to get beyond the reflective ‘thinking’ mind into a deeper state of relaxation.  It is an effective form of stress reduction.  It is about letting go and surrendering to the inner silence, slowing down the breathing, heart rate and blood pressure.  An effective method to combat stress.

“Meditation is not a destination.”

Meditation is a state of THOUGHTLESS AWARENESS – it is not an act of doing – it is a state of awareness – we are either in this state or not.

Meditation is a state of profound, deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent, yet completely alert. This is just the beginning of an inner transformation that takes us to a higher level of awareness.

Meditation can be an effective form of stress reduction and has the potential to improve quality of life.

Meditation is effortless and leads to a state of ‘thoughtless awareness’ in which excessive stress producing activity of the mind is neutralised without reducing alertness or effectiveness

Meditation allows us to focus on the present moment rather than dwell on the unchangeable past or undetermined future.

“Perfection has no place in meditation.  Give up any expectation of a particular result and rest at ease with whatever is present.”
