Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. The ancient sages would leave their homes, families and friends and go off into the mountains and forests and sit in quiet solitude for years to discover the methods of attaining deep connection within themselves – leading them towards enlightenment.
Mindful Awareness is the first step to turning inwards and becoming attuned to your thoughts and actions. Through this practice we begin to develop an understanding of our mental habits. We begin to see from our heart rather than from our ego. Our actions then start being of true benefit to ourselves and others.
There are many benefits to practicing meditation and mindfulness for both the physical body and our minds. Deep healing and lasting happiness, not to mention the benefit it brings to those around you.
