Our minds work just as hard as our bodies do, if not harder sometimes. They are constantly processing, planning, anticipating, problem solving, organising, worrying, thinking…
Meditation is something that we can do to help the mind to rest, allowing it to settle and become more peaceful. In this space, we experience a sense of deep calm. Worry, overactivity and mental discomfort can ease and we can begin to experience better health. Meditation has been benefitting people for thousands of years.
Here are just some of the benefits:
- Improved sleep
- Lower blood pressure
- Decreased heart rate
- Improved concentration
- More balanced emotions
- Anti ageing
- Stronger immune system
In a session, you will learn practical, down to earth and easy to use techniques that will help you cultivate a more peaceful, alert and positive mind.
Allow us to demystify this amazing and often misunderstood practice and you’ll experience for yourself how beneficial it can be. You may even wonder how you ever managed without it.
Western Science has been focused on understanding our outer world through the medium of the five senses. The Ancient Yogis took a different approach; they wanted to understand their inner world – our mind and consciousness. By sitting still and calming the mind they were able to access a deep inner peace. Like scientists, they were able to develop “scientific laws/techniques” of how this peace could be accessed, thus the ancient science of meditation was created. Thousands of years later, Western scientists are able to quantify and measure many of the physiological, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits of the ancient yogis “inner science”.
The practice of meditation facilitates value of self, to help one find balance, love, happiness and peace within. Meditation focuses on the potential and richness of our own resources, recognizing that whilst material possessions can be enjoyed, they are not to be valued as the sole source of our happiness.
Meditation is not just about words, theories or concepts; but a practical set of techniques which show one how to access a deep inner peace within. The practice of meditation can take as little as five minutes a day or much longer, it is a matter of personal preference.
Lastly, meditation is beneficial for everyone. Our courses are non-denominational and non-religious; enabling each person to use the techniques learned on the course to enhance and enrich their particular lifestyle, whatever their philosophical orientation.
