Coming home – an introduction to meditation
About the class:
In meditation we face what is going on inside. We become aware of the inner dialogue and story making that determine how we perceive the world around us, how we feel about our life, our self and what is going on. Meditation is an opportunity to get to know our self more intimately.
Furthermore, meditation is a way to cultivate awareness, also called mindfulness. Instead of our attention following every attractive object appearing before our senses, we cultivate the ability to actively direct and focus our attention at will. This makes us able to choose wisely instead of simply functioning reactively.
Ultimately, we find the still point inside, the witness who is closer to us than our own skin. Here we can find peace – even amid turmoil. Here we can find stability and clarity. We come home to our self.
