Meditation 

Meditation is a practice of awareness and self inquiry.

Anyone can meditate, it only takes a true desire in learning, discipline and patience.  Similar to sleep, meditation can not be taught- it just comes by itself, you can only learn the steps that will ease your way in to it. Just like you can learn to ride a bike or play an instrument, you can learn how to use the mind as a tool to reach optimal health, well-being and ultimately personal transformation. 

Through meditation we learn to let go and just practice receiving everything as it is. There is no such thing as controlling or stopping the mind during meditation. The true flowering of meditation happens by just being, your only effort is to show up to practice. 

The beauty of meditation is that it gives you a clear access to what inspires you, to what brings joy and happiness in life- allowing you to discover your gifts and true purpose. Through a daily practice of meditation, you will feel more grounded and open to receive life with all of it's ups and downs. 

Meditation will bring you profound sensitivity, a great sense of belonging to the whole world and this belonging is full of love
— Dr Vasant Lad
