Meditation is both a practice and a state;
it is both a science and an art.
We practice meditation to reach the meditative state. Through our practice, the science of our biology begins to alter, enabling us to experiment with the art of just being.
It is in this state of being, when we’ve moved away from thinking and immersed ourselves in feeling, that we find our deepest intuition speaking to us. It is in this silent, sacred space, that we tap into our deep well of knowing -that intuitive source of wisdom embedded inside each and every one of us that has nothing to do with our intellect.
It is here, that all of our answers softly appear.
While there are countless different meditation techniques, there are two generalized schools of approach:
∙ Vipassana, which translates into “insight” and is often referred to in modern terms as Mindfulness. This practice stems primarily from the Buddhist tradition.
∙ Samatha, which translates into “concentration” and stems primarily from the Yogic tradition.
Historically these practices have evolved from different lineages but they share similar roots, and as one advances in their practice, an overlap becomes apparent. I integrate both practices into my teaching, as I find them to be compatible and complementary to one another, particularly for those just beginning their quest toward inner peace, growth, and happiness through meditation.
