Meditation is the perfect balance to our demanding, busy lives.  It's benefits are numerous and have been scientifically documentated. 

Meditation reduces stress, improves concentration, encourages a healthy lifestyle, increases self-awareness, happiness and acceptance, slows aging and strengthens our cardiovascular and immune systems.

Mediations is a great way to relax and unwind and feel more calm and clear. 

Meditation helps us be productive, innovative, resourceful, and motivated to do and be our best without going into stress or overwhelm.

Meditation helps us to be more authentic, to relate to ourselves and others in a way that is more real, connected and sincere, in short to be in our integrity.

Meditaiton is not a one size fits all. There are many different ways to meditate, calm the mind and feel more centered and balanced.

Some people experience serenity walking in nature.  Some people like to use specific breathing techniques.  Some people like yoga, tai chi or qigong as a form of meditation.  Some people like to listen to a recording that walks them through a meditative experience.  Some people get that feeling hiking up a mountain, taking a walk in the woods, skiing down a mountain slope or swimming laps in a pool. 

Actually, life can be a meditative experience, one moment after another.  That's the goal, anyway.

This free mini-course is an introduction to the benefits of meditation with practical, easy-to-follow instructions.

One more thing:  Everyone has time to meditate, even for 10 or 15 minutes a day.  We can all find a quiet moment, even in our car, where no one is around and we can just relax and breathe; or, where we can go outside in our bare feet and walk in the grass, ground, be fully present in our bodies and just let a little bit of that stress we have been holding onto go.

Meditation is no longer for monks who live a secluded life in mountain monasteries.  If you don't want to miss out on your life because you are always stressed, rushing from one place to another and forgetting to breathe, meditate.  Take care for yourself, learn to slow down and learn to enjoy not having to be anywhere or do anything.

Meditation can be challenging at first; that's why I recommend moving forms of meditation for some at first.  And that means no cell phones or talking with a friend or all of the other things we do to distract ourselves.  It means moving with purpose and being aware of each moment.
