Meditation practices and guided meditation are techniques that encourage and develop concentration, clarity, emotional positivity, and calm vision of the true nature of things. By engaging with a particular meditation practice, you learn the patterns and habits of your mind, and the practice offers a means to cultivate new, more positive ways of being.
With regular work and patience, this nourishing focus can deepen into profoundly peaceful and energized states of mind. Such experiences can be transformative, and result in a number of health benefits including a reduction in high blood pressure, depression, anxiety, and chronic pain.
