Meditation is used here as a broad term for a variety of practices done by a sole practitioner without much, if any, external aide, often for the purpose of self-transformation. Often, though not at all necessarily, meditation is done as part of a religious tradition.
With the hectic pace and demands of modern life, many people feel stressed and over-worked. It often feels like there is just not enough time in the day to get everything done. Our stress and tiredness make us unhappy, impatient and frustrated. It can even affect our health. We are often so busy we feel there is no time to stop and meditate! But meditation actually gives you more time by making your mind calmer and more focused. A simple ten or fifteen minute breathing meditation as explained below can help you to overcome your stress and find some inner peace and balance.
Meditation can also help us to understand our own mind. We can learn how to transform our mind from negative to positive, from disturbed to peaceful, from unhappy to happy. Overcoming negative minds and cultivating constructive thoughts is the purpose of the transforming meditations found in the Buddhist tradition. This is a profound spiritual practice you can enjoy throughout the day, not just while seated in meditation.
Our meditation techniques enable you to overcome the stress and get rid of negativity around you. We host meditation sessions for individuals and for groups. The session is complemented by spiritual counseling and teachings of meditation techniques which one can use post the session. So far, more than 500 people have participated in our sessions and have enjoyed its benefits.
Meditation is relaxation. If you are not relaxed during meditation you are not really meditating! The aim of meditation is to clear the mind of all intrusive and irrelevant thoughts in order to reach a natural state uncluttered by day to day stresses and concerns. The state of one’s mind once this has been achieved is similar to the state of our muscles when fully relaxed and not straining to fulfill some kind of action. If you cast your mind back to an occasion when you have felt your body to be fully relaxed you will note how this occurred precisely as a result of not striving after relaxation, but rather as a result of just ‘letting oneself go‘.
As with muscular relaxation, relaxing the brain is something that we rarely have time to do in our daily routine. Even if we are not directly aware of tension, we will generally be harbouring physical and mental pressures of some kind. Relaxation is the total absence of these day to day pressures and for that reason it makes more sense to look upon meditation as the self-same state of relaxation, rather than asking whether or not it will help to aid relaxation. The question over whether relaxation will help one to relax can only be asked by someone who is neither relaxed nor meditating!
The sessions can be organised at a place of your choice as well. We have experience in conducting sessions for corporate groups as well. Click Here to contact us and know more about our Meditation services
