What is Meditation?
Meditation is a mental training technique. It trains our attention and awareness. Research has established relationships between mindfulness practices and a long list of outcomes. For example, improved cognitive functioning, decreased stress, slower aging processes, and greater states of joy. As a result, meditation trains the mind to become more focused. Also, training the mind to be self-aware, connected to others and strategic when identifying priorities and pursuing action. When we begin a practice of self-awareness and self-mastery, true transformation emerges. Subsequently, we learn to let go of limiting beliefs. In conclusion, we move towards a deeply fulfilling life. It’s up to us to choose how the story of our life unfolds.
