Why use Meditation and Reflection?
Most likely you will have a goal in mind when you come to meditation practice. What is in your mind and heart matters deeply, and does not need to be separated out from your meditation practice.
Whether you want to clear your mind of thoughts, relax and de-stress, or follow your breath and body sensations, our meditation instructions are simple and easy, and you can’t do them wrong.
Starting gently, and staying near to your experience during meditation you will begin to trust the capacity to discover ways of being skillful within the practice and with life experiences. Much of the learning comes from your own recognition and insight, rather than from an authority, a tradition, or any dogmatic and rigid way of thinking about meditation.
We believe that you can learn beneficial ways of meditating by seeing how your mind operates within meditation. This kind of “seeing” can be naturally developed through recollection and reflection, whether done in a journal or expressed verbally to an experienced teacher or peers.
