napal4What is meditation?

We all like to think we know who we are. Yet who is this person we call me? We spend so much time, chasing after our thoughts and emotions, trying to sustain a definite sense of personality and identity at all costs. Yet sometimes, we experience moments when we drop into a stream of deeper consciousness, inspiring us to live with clarity, wisdom and compassion. We arrive home inside ourselves. We witness our true nature, as the mind opens…

This is the art of meditation; awakening the mind into a clarity of awareness, cultivating mindfulness of what is. Sure, you still get angry, tense, scared, upset, but you don’t become the living embodiment of these shifting emotions, getting swept away in life’s drama. You can stand in the midst of the life, catching hold of awareness to hold you steady, clear, focused and responsive. Through simple Buddhist meditation techniques of breath awareness, Vipassana, Metta and heart opening – observing changing thoughts and emotions, you can start to see who you really are, as the heart and mind open into greater joy and insight.

Life is constantly changing around us. A meditation practice can help you to move and grow beyond the suffering, pain, fear, anger that come from clinging onto a fixed sense self and identity, of how we think reality is. It is up to you to explore and embrace the true nature of your humanity, to understand mind so you can connect to your true potential. To awaken mind, this is your birthright.
