Meditation is that fascinating journey where one becomes more awakened to one’s true self and able to unfold the hidden potential that one is not aware of.
Meditation expands consciousness and reduces the mental resistance, thus realising indestructible sense of well-being.
All we need to allow the mind to reveal its elements and emotions. Being in touch with the mind and emotions by consciously feeling or witnessing them without thinking or analysing or altering them or pushing for anything amazing rather feeling them as they are with stillness and with a sense of acceptance. This understanding of the mind could be achieved by being present and still in that moment. Mind starts revealing its elements and emotions. Here starts a process of self discovery.
This self discovery leads us to the sense of oneness with the wider world- a deep seamless connection, and tremendous joy and fulfilment and under lying peace within us.
It is about living fully in each moment and not duelling in the past or the future.
Ten minutes of daily practice of meditation can make huge difference in life. It brings a growing sense of oneness with the wider world and we start appreciating things around us and accept them as they are. It can bring the perspective we need to manage our busy schedule and help us manage stress.
In meditation sessions we use number of techniques to reach to the point that-life is so simple.
All know the way, but very few actually walk it – Zen

How meditation works:
Through deep-breathing, which is central to any meditation practice, muscle fatigue and tension are reduced by increasing the circulation of oxygen to the muscles. Meditation has also been proven to lower high blood pressure due to its stress-reducing benefits. Meditation induces the relaxation response which helps manage pain, insomnia and headaches.
It brings to the state of homeostasis and brain starts resonating on much lower frequencies, which allow senses to be heightened and aroused even during routine tasks, one starts seeing beauty of flowers or experiencing freshness in the air, making day more enjoyable; and one starts responding to situations rather than reacting.
The “fight or flight” response is greatly reduced and more emotional self-control is achieved which helps in crisis management, making life simple and easy.
Meditation promotes deep sense of relaxation, builds internal energy, expands inner peace and tranquillity and greater Self-awareness and far reaching goal is living with indestructible sense of well-being.
The feeling of being more “connected” and a greater sense of purpose help to resolve any past issues and difficulties on an unconscious level hence relieves from anxiety and fears.
