A step up from this could be to focus on our breathing in order to exclude thought. When the mind wanders (which it invariably does) we bring it gently back to the breath. Or maybe, following a guided visualisation leading us through a relaxation sequence and on an imagined 'journey' to a peaceful place. Alternatively, we could focus on a visual object such as a candle or pleasing image or repeat a mantra (repetitive statement) to distract the mind.
Our courses and one to ones in Meditation tuition cover the methods above and allow a supportive space in which to practice.
Whichever method we use to quieten the mind, the benefits of meditation can be powerful and may include:
more happiness and flow in your life
reduction in stress and anxiety
a greater sense of inner-peace and tranquillity
improved mental, emotional and physical well-being
increased confidence and self-esteem
more restful and refreshing sleep
better focus , concentration and memory
may enhance creativity
can help with attaining a sense of spiritual connection
helps to create a deeper understanding of others
