Meditation for Beginners

An exploration into clarity and focus

To many, meditation seems overwhelming, too complex and challenging or even whoo-whoo. Many say, “My mind wanders” or “I fall asleep.” Yet, meditation can be as simple as becoming aware of your breathing.  When you become aware of the breath, listening to the inhale and exhale, the mind moves to attention. Try it for 30 seconds and you’ve meditated, even if your mind wanders, bring it back to the breath. Once this happens,  you will begin to feel calm and clear. This is meditation.

Focus the Mind

The mind has the capacity to hold a focus or connection. When we focus the mind in one direction, it is like exercise for the mind, making the mind more adaptable and fluid. In everyday life, we move our attention from one object to another, call monkey mind. When we move from this external mind and bring our attention to the internal, or something like the breath, we begin exercise our attention and connect with self or consciousness. We begin to meditate.

In Meditation for Beginners we begin to learn to focus the mind first through gentle movement, then breathwork, onto visualization. Class also includes journal exercises and relaxation techniques for stress-reduction and visualization for setting positive intentions.
