MEDITATION

Meditation is a contemplative practice that works with understanding the nature of the mind, and how our thoughts, emotions, and feelings can have an affect on our physical health and life experiences. It is a practice of developing stillness, awareness, concentration, insight, and clarity to the true nature of things by focusing on the breath.

Meditation is a means of transforming the mind. There are many different types, variations, and traditions which all share the common act of stilling the body and mind through the act of drawing the senses inward and concentrating on the breath.

The benefits of this powerful practice include – but are not limited to – cultivating self-awareness, improving concentration, building emotional sensitivity, developing coping strategies, managing stress, gaining clarity, and encouraging responsive over reactionary thinking. A regular meditation practice helps to transform the way one views, understands, sees and acts in the world.

You can get started anywhere at anytime! You can start on your own at home, under the guidance of a teacher, or in a group setting. To begin, sit comfortably in an upright position in a quiet space. Set a timer and commit to a period of time, with an average starting practice being 10 minutes. Stick to this. After starting the clock, either close your eyes or keep your vision fixed on a point. Focus your concentration on your breath as it enters and exits your body, and practice keeping the body and mind still.

A quiet, peaceful place, a comfortable seat, a timer, and an open mind and curious attitude.

Starting small to begin (5-10 minutes) and working up to longer periods (15-30 minutes) is generally recommended, helping to build up physical and mental stamina to sit still. Ultimately, a time that is consistent each day is what is most important, whether that be as a little as 5 minutes or as long as 60 hours. Consistency is more valuable than lengthiness.

Typically, starting a meditation practice can feel challenging. The mind will automatically want to distract you with a flooding of thoughts, feelings, and sensations. At first, this may feel “defeating.” Remembering that the goal of meditation is not to make the mind completely quiet, but rather observe and understand its nature is important. There is no such thing as “good” or “bad” meditation, it is a practice. Realizations, sense of peace and tranquility, and a heightened sense of awareness are commonly reported experiences following a meditation practice.
