Meditation is an ancient practice that, in different forms, is found in most religious and philosophical traditions.
Mindfulness meditation (meaning “awareness” or “full consciousness”) is inspired by Buddhism but has no religious component. Through targeted breath exercises and guided visualizations, emotions and feelings, even very old ones, can be brought out through this practice that speak of us and to us.
The main purpose of this type of meditation is to increase self-awareness, but it also has positive consequences in daily life.
Let’s see together what are some of the benefits of meditative practice:
- Mental and physical relaxation
- Anxiety and stress management
- Improved concentration
- Strengthening of immune defenses
- Lowering of blood pressure
- Improved sleep quality
- Improved management of emotions
To experiment with this very useful technique of centering oneself in the present moment, I have designed guided online meditation cycles of about 30 to 40 minutes, at the end of which we will share what we have seen, heard and experienced.
The first cycle will feature 3 meditations:
The Breath Meditation
During this meeting, we will focus on breath practice, also known as pranayama, which is the basis not only of any kind of meditation, but also of our lives.
The Thought Meditation
Throughout the day, we are constantly overwhelmed by thoughts that have nothing constructive about them because they take us back to a past that no longer exists or to worries about a future that does not yet exist. With this meditation, we will learn to convey thoughts constructively and use the mind more carefully.
Unflappable and unflappable, the mountain communicates strength and stability, the same attitudes we will cultivate during this meditation.
