Meditation & Attachment

Tuesday, February 12, 2019

In yoga, we talk about letting go of what no longer serves us. This can be said of anything or anyone who weighs us down physically, mentally, emotionally, or spiritually. It refers to our attachment to certainties in life. It can manifest itself in behaviors that leave us feeling unfulfilled or anxious. It is trying to live up to expectations and desires that invariably leave us with a compromised sense of self.  

Like anything that is unwanted – extra body weight, a toxic relationship, a career that no longer serves our best interest – it can be difficult to shed. Part of the goals behind meditation is to not have to let go, later, of what has become a burden, but rather to not hold on to it in the first place.

Meditation For Beginners

"Quiet the mind, and the soul will speak."

Life can get hectic at times, as there are many things that are out of our control. Meditation is a simple, yet very effective way of calming our minds and changing them for the better. By developing a meditation practice, you will learn the habits of your mind as a means to cultivate a more positive way of being.
