Meditation

Tired of trying to control & change everything, feeling lost and victim of your emotions, overthinking or negative biased loops of your own thoughts? 

You can re-connect with your real self and re-create your reality. 

Meditation practices offer great tools in the journey of learning to live in the moment with freedom and harmony. 

The science behind meditation

All the religions, ancient spiritual teachings, philosophers, spies, martial artists, athletes and many more meditation practitioners... They had a shared wisdom, the key to the mind, throughout the civilizations, and they all practiced different forms of meditation.

Nowadays the science world has started to find this ancient tool interesting. More and more experts working on psychology and neurology make researches on meditation. Their work reveal interesting results. 

In the old times human brain was believed to stop changing after growing up, however recent studies on meditation suggest that our brains are plastic and we have the ability to re-shape our brains! (Check out Sara Lazar and Jon Kabat-Zinn for more details) 

 

The reason meditation has been very popular among different environments is so simple, it gives us keys to the most powerful tool we have, the mind...
 

 

The greatest power or the greatest enemy?

Thinking and creativity are two of our great powers, yet when the self is identified with the products of the mind they can easily become two great enemies... This enemy has such a great power that it's almost impossible to we fight against.  

The reason is explained, in the wild times our ancestors needed a powerful survival mechanism, our brains were evolved to keep us alive by being alert and constantly looking for dangers. That also explains why we are habitual beings. 

 

Even if the modern life doesn't require us to be alert like it was before, we have a lot more stimulation & different kind of problems AND we still operate from the same nervous system. What's more in the fast paced modern life with we get more and more disconnected from the nature and our own nature.  That disconnection creates a gap between the healing mechanism and keep us in the survival mechanism. 

 

Some people have less or more resilience, but if we don't apply self-care we eventually and HABITUALLY end up getting stuck in the survival mechanism, which can manifest in life in many ways. Here we don't have a realistic questioning of our thoughts about life, people and us. We don't notice our thoughts are mostly negative biased and stress, trauma, wrong beliefs, lack of self care (both mental and physical) adds in to it.

How meditation can help to LOUD minds?

LOUD mind can mean a wide range of conditions from a critical approach towards self & others to PTSD or simply the natural negative bias of the mind. 

 

No matter what is the experience, good news, we all have the ability to re-shape your brain regardless of our race, religion, body shapes or social background. 

When we meditate we get to see what is actually happening from a distance, without being caught up in the dizzying whirl of current thoughts. We learn how to unlearn any judgmental attitudes towards other people, and ourselves. We learn how to love ourselves compassionately when we are not the victim of self-critical or impulsive thoughts anymore. We re-gain our freedom of choice to believe / ignore / act on / improve the products of the mind.

  • to relax

  • to find answers to questions
