Meditation – East & West
Eastern & Western styles of Meditation are different. This appointment aims to assess your ability with each, and then to practice what you are best at. The ultimate purpose of meditation is to discover meaning in our mind and to balance the mind’s content in the most efficient way. We then move on to Contemplation(a stage beyond meditation), which is objectless and silent.
Although Mindfulness, as popularly taught today, is not a Meditation style in itself, it is a useful discipline in ‘concentration’, and we offer it for those who would like to experience its benefits. It is also valuable for any beginner meditation practitioner to start with.
This style of Meditation is for those who are ready to step beyond the mind and into the very essence of Contemplative awareness. It aims at what is called Reflexive Self-consciousness, a state of transcendent awareness which is the culmination of all meditation procedures; pure bliss. It’s for those who have the energy & mental integration to apply the simple rule which is at its basis. It is advanced and not suitable for a beginner meditator when first starting out, but can be successfully introduced as experience develops.
