All of us, whether we are conscious of it or not, live in a state of sensory-overload. The volume of information, the speed at which it enters our minds, and the pace of modern life, are growing exponentially. In addition, we experience daily exposure to what psychologists call ‘man-made stress-rampers’ such as noise, pollution, or competitive work, school and social cultures. With greater access to global news we are also exposed ‘world anxiety’ – the tension created through knowledge of broader world events that affect our sense of wellbeing.
We are physiologically and psychologically reacting to these aspects of modern life all the time, even in our sleep, and it has very marked effects on our mind/body systems.
Meditation calms the mind/body system and reconnects our consciousness with our entire Self, its subtle energetic systems and intelligence. Meditation creates a circuit-breaker to the stress cycle of modern living.
To ‘meditate’ is to consciously draw-in the dissipated mind, calm the mind/body system and dwell in a state of clear, alert awareness, at will. It is a scientific technique of both the body and the mind in combination. It is accompanied by significant physiological changes and it allows the practitioner to enter into their still, stable, centre of being.
When we regularly abide in this state, we see the world, our life experience and those within it in a whole new way; we live mindfully. We also experience healing, regeneration, synchronisation and revitalisation of our physical body.
