08 Jun Meditation For Beginners

In theory, the idea of meditation for beginners (and advanced practitioners) seems very simple – sit still and quiet your mind.


In reality, however, meditation can be extremely difficult. There are days when your mind won’t just stop. Words and images will fly around, your thoughts will meander from point to point, things that have happened, things you need to do and things you want to do. Clearing your mind of these day-to-day things will take time and effort. But you need to start somewhere.

The first stage of meditation begins with learning how to concentrate the mind on one thought or object for a period of time. We call this process ‘being present’.
