In our busy work and personal activities we often find ourselves under pressure to get things done under tight deadline and target. Not to mention the growing expectations of others. Often we do not realize that the accumulated stress from all of our activities has grown to dangerous levels, making us even more stressed, unhappy, and the worst, losing the spirit to live.
When we have reached that point, meditation is the answer. Meditation is a valuable tool for finding peace, relaxation, and relieving stress in our life.
Meditation is a technique or practice that allows you to relax and concentrate. With meditation we can learn on how to slow down our mind, and relax it to the level that our mind can relax. It can be practiced almost anywhere and every time you feel the need to loosen your mind up.
If you want to meditate under the instructions of the experts, these places should be noted on your list:
Here you can enroll in The Art of Meditation course, which is also known as Sahaj Samadhi. Sahaj, in Sanskrit, means effortless and Samadhi is silent yet lively state of awareness that lies at the source of thought. During Art of Meditation practice, you will find that your mind effortlessly experiences this state of Samadhi. Upon finishing your meditation you will find that you feel infused with these qualities of energy, clarity, creativity and perhaps, deep inner peace. The courses are held in various places and scheduled regularly.
Brahma Kumaris is a worldwide spiritual movement dedicated to personal transformation and world renewal.
