Meditation Practice

buddha - Gleneden Beach OR

Many meditate for relaxation and de-stressing, while others practice more intentionally with an emphasis on spiritual knowing/awakening. Regardless of one’s purpose and approach, the practice of meditation is generally life-enriching. Most methods help shift the meditator’s awareness from being thought-sensation oriented, to being the witness, resting alertly, observing presently, dispassionately. In yogic (transcendental) meditation practice, one’s ideal intention and action is complete self-surrender into infinite Consciousness; pure Being .
