Meditation is a way to make the mind more stable and clear. It is for everyone who has noticed their minds are chaotic or unsettled and who wish for a deeper understanding of their experiences. From our point of view, meditation is not purely a Buddhist practice; it is a practice anyone can do and can benefit all. Meditation practice is for everyone, regardless of their experience or religious affiliation.
Meditation is based on the belief that the natural state of the mind is calm and clear. As such, the practice of meditation provides a way for us to train our mind to settle into this natural state. Often, a first reason for meditating is that we wants to find some freedom from our agitated minds.
Can I benefit from Meditation?
YES! Everyone can benefit from meditation. It is helpful for stress reduction, addiction, chronic pain, anxiety, depression, obsessive thoughts and worry, eating disorders, general discontent and most other human conditions you can think of. It is helpful to anyone who has a sincere interest in learning to flow with the human experience and in living with an open heart and open mind.
