People have all sorts of ideas about what meditation is, based on a wide variety of experiences and influences. Meditation is not about becoming a different person, a new person, or even a better person. It’s about training in awareness and achieve a mentally clear and emotionally calm and stable state. Meditation teaches you to learn, observe and better understand your thoughts or feelings without judgment.
At House of Ascend, we advocate meditation to bring about harmony in the body, peace of mind, and connection with the Self. A meditation practice requires a lot of time, discipline and patience, but it is ultimately rewarding in the long run. Here are just some of the benefits of a regular meditation practice:
Eases stress hormones
Regulates heart rate
Increases immune functions
Lowers blood pressure
Suppresses negative thoughts
Eases fear and anxiety
Regardless of your past experience, merely showing up for yourself is an important step towards understanding your inner landscape - a vital practice in an increasingly disconnected world. - Suraya Sam
