Meditation is an excellent pastime in today’s society where every person is busy, busy, and busy and on the go. It is taking time out to rejuvenate the body and mind. The initial benefits of meditation are that it calms the mind and bring inner peace. When the mind is calm, it becomes more focused thereby improving mindfulness and memory. Those who meditate learn to be patient and to be persevering. As practitioners advance they becomes less self centered and become team player. Advance practitioners have the opportunity to eventually find their true mind; albeit with proper guidance and constant practice.
When we sit body and mind unmoving, it is likened to a process where a glass of river water becomes clearer as the sediments settle on the bottom of the glass.
Investigating a meditation topic is the process to remove the sediments from the bottom of the glass.
Class time: Saturdays 2 pm to 3 pm.
