"The quieter you become, the more you are able to hear."- Rumi
Mindfulness Meditation is an approach to training the mind, similar to the way fitness is an approach to training the body. The practice of meditation awakens us from our conditioned and habitual thinking, which often keeps us from our inner wisdom, or natural presence. Through practice we begin to understand that this presence is a recognition of the here and now. We learn to live life in the moment. We wake up to presence, or loving awareness, that is always, and already, here.
Studies suggest that regular meditation practice produces measurable changes in the brain. From increased gray matter to enhanced connectivity between brain regions, meditation can also help relieve anxiety and depression symptoms, as well as improve attention, concentration, and overall psychological well-being.
