On Meditation

Thursday, May 7, 2020

Yoga Training
Stress reduction is one of the most common reasons people try meditation. The best way to prepare for meditation is to first do some yoga to bring your body to a calm and relaxed state. Then you'll be ready to shut down your senses and focus your mind.

The word meditation, is derived from two Latin words :
• meditari (to think, to dwell upon, to exercise the mind)
• mederi (to heal).

Its Sanskrit derivation 'medha' means wisdom.

Meditation means 'a cessation of the thought process'. It describes a state of consciousness, when the mind is free of scattered thoughts and various patterns. The word meditation also describes a practice of single-minded focus.

If your mind wanders or remains active during a meditation session, you have not failed that session. Meditation is also the experience of focused awareness, and the ability to separate ourselves from identifying as our mind or identifying as our thoughts.
