– Jiddu Krishnamurti
As children we are told to focus or to concentrate, but rarely taught how. Meditation explores and offers tangible directives that teach us to not only focus and concentrate, but how to reliably and repeatedly enter into expanded states of conscious awareness.
Meditation is like a user’s manual for the mind, which guides us to harness and cultivate one of our most precious gifts and powerful tools. The practice often is accompanied by breathing techniques, visualizations, and mantras (sacred sounds or affirmations) that augment our natural energy and awareness.
Meditation is a potent practice that assists in developing self-acceptance, self-awareness, self-reliance, and ultimately self-actualization.
