Many times we live in our thoughts, forgetting to experience the world around us, just the way it is.
The meditation (dhyana) practice means to stop and look deeply. It helps us recover the connection with the body, the sense, awareness of emotions, thought patterns and reactions rooted in us.
Meditation allows us calm the mind, observe all that emerges, exists and then disappears, without judging or reacting to these events. A regular practice offers us a sense of perspective and helps us identify that which is truly important from what isn’t.
This practice is not about escaping but rather about being fully in the present and connecting with life.
