Feeling out of control? Frazzled? Unable to focus? Rushing from one thing to the next thing to the next? Forgetting the power of the breath? Perhaps meditation would help bring you a sense of calm and centeredness, bringing awareness to your humanness. To spend time in quiet thought, focused on an object or sound, or simply being focused on breathing are a few suggestions to get you started on including meditation in your life. How to get started? There are many guided meditations out there online and with the use of apps in this age of technology. It is suggested to start with 3-5 minutes of daily practice to get in the habit of bringing meditation into your life. For some people, focused breathing works, for others, concentrating on a flower or other object works best. One of the most accessible ways to experience the overall benefits of meditation is to listen to a guided meditation, which we offer monthly at the studio. This can be an incredibly enjoyable, healthy and inspiring way to achieve inner peace. You will learn to achieve a state of deep inner stillness, so that your mind can be cleared of clutter and unwanted thoughts. You will learn to strengthen the body to aid in a sitting meditation practice and how breath can be used to calm the mind.
Our next Guided Meditation is on Sunday, February 12 from 11 am – 12 pm. We are minutes from Winston-Salem and invite you to join us. Have a beautiful day!
