Meditation

Meditation – Not peace of mind but peace ‘off’ mind

“Meditation is a state of being, not doing. It is locating the self in a deep space of inner silence”

What is meditation?


  • To be calm and focused without any strain or stressyoga
  • To increase awareness of the world around us and within us
  • Being in moment with constant choice-less observation
  • A process more than a goal… a beautiful journey rather than a destination

Why do we need to meditate?


  • To effectively manage stress
  • To lead a better and productive life
  • To calm the mind

What is stress?


  • It is body’s way of protecting us. The nervous system responds by releasing a flood of stress hormones, including adrenalin and cortisol.

What does it to us?


Immediately 

  • The heart pounds faster, muscles tighten, blood pressure rises, breath quickens, and senses become sharper thus preparing us to either fight or flee from the surroundings.

In the long term 

  • Stress can raise blood pressure, increase risk of heart attack and stroke, and contribute to infertility.
  • Sleep and digestion problems, obesity, autoimmune diseases and skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis are some other health problems that are caused or exacerbated by stress.
  • The most dangerous thing about stress is that we get used to it and we start to feel familiar, even normal.

Why do we experience stress?


  • The deadlines of modern life have made stress so common that it has become a way of life for many people. When we are stressed, our body reacts just as strongly as if we were in a life or death situation.

What are the warning signs of stress?



  • Memory problems
  • Constant worrying
  • Mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Short temper
  • Depression
  • Aches and pains

  • Allergies
  • Skin conditions
  • Eating more or eating less
  • Using alcohol or cigarettes to relax
  • Nail biting
  • Sweaty palms

 

How to manage stress?


  • Learn to handle thoughts, emotions, schedules, environment and the way
    we deal with problems
  • Stress can also be reduced to healthy levels using mediation

What happens when we meditate?


  • Meditation activates a state of restfulness that is opposite to the stress
    response
  • Daily practice leads to a reduction in day to day stress levels and boost in our feelings of joy and serenity
  • It increases our ability to remain calm and composed during pressuremed-2

Benefits of meditations –

MEDITATION AT THE OTHER SONG

We have evolved our own technique which consists of 3 steps

  • Recognizing and identifying with the body
  • Becoming the witness
  • Getting rid of witness

The session lasts for 45 minutes to an hour. Brief lecture is taken before each session followed by 30 minutes of actual meditation. During this session, a sense of deep relaxation can be experienced. As one continues to practice meditation, it becomes second nature to turn within. Meditation is also a state that can be maintained throughout the day giving one a sense of uninterrupted peace and contentment.
