Meditation is learning how to relax, just the way you are.
In our culture, it can be difficult to understand what a meditation practice really is, until we start our own practice.
I remember when a co-worker first told me that he practiced meditation, and I wondered: “What could he possibly be doing with all that silence?”
I had always associated meditation practices with renunciates, ninjas and monks. As I read more about the benefits, I quickly learned that its practice is spreading like wildfire across the corporate world, as well as in the education and health care sector, as a way to manage high stress levels and improve performance.
Meditation is difficult to describe to someone who has never practiced before. However, I assure you that it’s a very natural, effortless process, and one that can bring great healing, joy and clarity into your life.
