Do you Meditate? Research has shown that meditating daily can increase your focus and attention and improves your ability to multitask! By clearing your mind and allowing you to focus on the present moment (mindfulness) it can even allow you to become more creative.
With the stresses of modern life becoming ever greater, it’s no surprise that more people are looking for ways to cope and to bring some calm back into their everyday lives; with many finding that meditation is the perfect antidote to ease the burden of pressure and busyness .
There are so many different types of meditation that all work in various ways to restore your inner calm that it can be overwhelming to choose a style when you’re first looking into the array of meditation styles and techniques.
A SIMPLE MEDITATION FOR BEGINNERS
This beginners’ meditation exercise will give you a taste of what you’ll learn in the course:
Begin by sitting or lying comfortably..
Close your eyes.
Make no effort to control your breath; simply breathe naturally.
Focus your attention on your breathing and on how your body moves with each inhalation and exhalation.
Notice the movement of your body as you breathe. Observe your chest, shoulders, rib cage, and belly.
Simply focus your attention on your breath without controlling its pace or intensity.
If your mind wanders, return your focus back to your breath.
Maintain this meditation practice for two to three minutes to start, and then try it for longer periods.

“Meditation will not carry you to another world, but it will reveal the most profound and awesome dimensions of the world in which you already live. Calmly contemplating these dimensions and bringing them into the service of compassion and kindness is the right way to make rapid gains in meditation as well as in life.” ~ Zen Master Hsing Yun
