What i Half Day Introduction To Meditation?
Meditation is a period of time away from your everyday activities, pressures, deadlines, distractions or responsibilities, during which you can develop more self-awareness, appreciation for life, clarity, peace of mind, and mind-body healing.
Sometimes meditation focus on cultivating creativity, or to uncovering and healing a particular emotional issue. Some meditation retreats are religious, and can include prayer, or other spiritual practices. Many are secular in nature and are attended by those who are looking for stress reduction and healing in a new perspective on life.
Why should I go on one?
A meditation retreat creates a memory of feeling whole and good – what your life can be. It’s one of the touchstones for more meaningful life and a new perspective. Meditation retreats are secular in nature yet can be deeply spiritual. It’s safe atmosphere designed to encourage participants to find out what’s inside: who they are and what they really want, and to become more intimate with their own awareness and their own life.
The retreats include powerful meditation practices, mindfulness experiences, There is always time for silence, recreation, and focused discussions and it’s guaranteed that you’ll discover something new about yourself.
Everyone will dive deep into meditation – whether they are new at it or are seasoned meditators. Meditation is a very subtle yet undeniably powerful practice to create more balance in the body, spaciousness in the mind, and a new appreciation for everything and everyone in your life. Our goal is to teach a deep practice of meditation so you can to create an opportunity to retreat every single day. The meditation itself is the retreat.
Meditation Retreat is focused on training your awareness so that you can be more present to your own life and the possibilities available in every moment. This way, when our “real lives” a kick in again when we get home, we can respond rather than react to certain situations.
When you get home, the changes may be subtle at first: you might order something different on a menu, have more patience with your children, or notice you are less concerned about what people think. You might feel more balanced, peaceful, creative or confident. There also could be more profound changes as you explore your relationship to your job, or where you live, or you find a renewed purpose or passion in life.
Meditation is an excellent way to reduce the stress in your life, without the side effects of medication. Whether you are struggling with cancer, high blood pressure, heart disease, fatigue, insomnia, chronic pain, or numerous other health problems that are worsened by stress, you can proactively learn how to reduce the stress in your life through meditation
What is meditation?
It is not contemplation, or concentration – those are activities of the mind, and meditation is about going beyond the mind and entering into dimensions of the unknowable.
This experience, of witnessing, is a knack – it is just a question of finding and practicing a technique that works for you, and it comes. Because it is something our being already knows. It is just blocked by the logic, rationality and control of our minds, which cannot conceive of anything unknowable.
We all know that meditation has been scientifically proved to be good for us – it lowers blood pressure, relieves stress, helps prevent heart attacks, calms nerves, and brings a sense of balance and harmony to the body/mind, creating a feeling of well-being.
How does it work? Basically because, as the medical experts tell us, most of our illnesses originate in the mind, you can say that disease is a result of a ‘dis-easiness we have with ourselves and with our surroundings. The stresses and tensions and repressed emotions accumulated because of the increasingly unnatural way we live our lives. Meditation works because it takes us beyond the mind, to a place of stillness and silence and peace.

Meditation doesn’t lead you to silence; meditation only creates the situation in which the silence happens. And this should be the criterion — that whenever silence happens laughter will come into your life. A vital celebration will happen all around. You will not become sad, you will not become depressed, and you will not escape from the world. You will be here in this world, but taking the whole thing as a game, enjoying the whole thing as a beautiful game, a big drama, no longer serious about it. Seriousness is a disease.
