The word meditation means something different to many different cultures and religions.
The meditation that I teach is free of any religious practice and I define it as "a devoted time to be present, neutralize, and connect to the earth and cosmos".
Meditation is a tool for calibrating and refreshing your own energy system. The clarity, balance and grounding that we can achieve through a basic meditation practice can be used to deepen our own personal evolution.
It gives us a time to be still, and be at peace, observing everything that is happening within us and around us. Through meditation and visualization, we can gain perspective about our emotions, the situations that trigger those emotions, and begin to confront personal issues and challenges that arise through life's many adventures.
