- About Meditation -
Whats the purpose of meditation?
To train our attention into clarity and focus to become more mindful of life. To train the muscles of attention to become more connected with life and be able to notice what happens inside and outside of ourselves. To train our minds to be present for our partners, loved ones, and all that comes into our lives; in a word, to be more fully present to all the richness of life.
Why would you want to quiet your mind?
Because behind the busy mind of your thoughts lies the secret of your existence: wisdom. Meditation is the tool that best takes you to that place of pure silence where everything, including thoughts, originates. In stillness you encounter your innate capacities for true love, creativity, joy, peace and healing.
Do you need a meditation teacher?
If you have access to an experienced meditation teacher, it is best to take a few sessions of meditation instruction and guidance. The instructor can recommend the style of meditation he or she thinks is most appropriate for you at this time in your life. A caring teacher would help you start on a smooth road and clear misunderstandings about the practice of meditation, expectations and usual resistances and blockages that we all may have in the beginning. A good sound start provides the solid ground on which you want to build your practice and reap its benefits for life.
However, a teacher is not absolute necessary. You can learn from books, videos and audios. Start easy and try to attend a retreat or join a meditation group. In the book "Happiness No Matter What!" you will find a few helpful guided meditations and also on the video section of this site.
