WHAT IS MEDITATION?

"It is the heart that knows how to meditate. Bring peace to the heart and the mind will be free."

Meditation is our natural state of being it is not something that we do. The practices of concentration, attention, mindfulness and inner listening are tools that help us to experience the natural state of meditation which is silence, peace, emptiness and resilience.

Meditation is an ancient art and science that creates inner wisdom, intuition and connection to return to our innate human nature. This allows to live in alignment with who we are, it helps us to make decisions with clarity and intention, to connect with our emotional intelligence, empathy, compassion and sensory awareness. It helps us to find and maintain connection and relationship with nature in turn cultivates peace, comfort. belonging and being with solitude.
