Meditation is the quieting of the mind, allowing you to create a state of inner calmness and mental clarity.
Meditation has changed my life. With so many influences and "noise" around us, it can be difficult to tap into our inner knowing, the place within us where insights of our unconscious mind rise to the surface and new insights present themselves through thought, an idea or a spark of inspiration.
Meditation can occur while sitting still, on a hike, in the shower, while doing a hobby, or while sitting or laying on a mat.
