So you’re ready to explore meditation? There are many ways to go about it, but essentially meditation is about one thing: opening to the depths of this very moment. Experience more presence and peace of mind in your daily life.
Our minds are constantly at work, going over the same habitual thoughts again and again. The experience for most of us in any given moment is that we are stuck in our heads, disconnected from our bodies, and living one step removed from our immediate situation.
Meditation is a method for synchronizing body and mind in the present moment. When the body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware, and we experience ourselves and the world in a direct, unmediated way, without conceptual filters. It is this direct experience of the fullness, vitality, and splendor of life that is the gift of meditation.
