Overview

Meditation is an ancient practice dating back many thousands of years. It is a method by which we look internally rather than externally for the causes of our well-being and happiness. Most of our lives are spent dwelling in the past or anticipating the future and rarely do we focus our full attention in the present moment. This is the principal of cause of stress as we search outside for the things that we think will bring us happiness and contentment, but inevitably if we are not happy within ourselves, then nothing external will provide us with any long lasting satisfaction. This short introduction gives advice and techniques for those starting out in meditation practice.
