Meditation and Breathwork
Meditation – is a precise technique for resting the mind and attaining a state of consciousness that is totally different from the normal waking state. It is the means for meeting ourself at different levels. Meditation is not a part of any religion; it is a science, which means that the process of meditation follows a particular order, has definite principles, and produces results that can be verified. In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. When you meditate, you are fully awake and alert, but your mind is not focused on the external world or on the events taking place around you. Meditation requires an inner state that is still and one-pointed so that the mind becomes silent. When the mind is silent and no longer distracts you, meditation deepens.
Breathwork – In general, the goal of any breathwork therapy is to support people in achieving a greater sense of self-awareness, an increased capacity for self-healing, and overall improvement in mental, physical, and spiritual well-being.
Breathwork therapy is believed to be of benefit to those who are experiencing issues such as:
- Chronic pain
- Anger issues
- Trauma and posttraumatic stress
- Grief and loss
- Emotional effects of physical illness
