Welcome to our Learning to Meditate course!

Meditation gives you numerous medical benefits besides improving your concentration and the ability to think logically. Due to the stress in our daily lives, meditation has now become essential for everyone. You can practice it irrespective of age or health condition.

History of Meditation

Meditation is an ancient technique and is recommended by all major religions. The founders of almost every modern religion, from the ancient Indian sages to the Sikh spiritual gurus, practiced meditation. In fact, most spiritual leaders believe that without meditation, it’s not possible to achieve true enlightenment.

In modern times, meditation is a common relaxation and concentration technique that is recommended by mental health professionals and counsellors for people of all ages. Meditation is also an integral part of yoga.

Considering its close association with religion, you may think that meditation is a form of worship. While it can be a form of worship or a religious technique, meditation is actually a high state of self-awareness, free from distractions. Concentration or focus on a particular activity is just an extension of this principle. So, if you are reading this without getting distracted by other thoughts, you are meditating! It’s more than worship or a relaxation technique. It’s a way of life!
