Meditation


Really enjoying this website today  http://centerforsustainablemedicine.com/meditation/
It's owned and run by my good friend Dr. Andrea Seiffertt who is the Medical Director of the Center for Sustainable Medicine in CA
The following paragraphs are just some of her words from a longer text, explaining the concept and benefits of meditation.
"Meditation is a way to connect to your own highest consciousness and perhaps beyond. This is the ‘real you’ and can be thought of as ‘above’ or ‘beyond’ or ‘our innermost self’ instead of what we typically think of as ‘yourself’ (the ‘ego’ or thought-based identity). This is the real ‘Self’ who can observe the thoughts, emotions, and physical body. There are many paths and many types of meditation. When you are ready to learn, a teacher will be easy to find.
It may be helpful to understand the quantum physics concept that the universe is a field of creative energy, or pure consciousness, out of which everything arises. We are in it, and are made of it, and we also ARE it. In Ayurveda, there are 5 levels or vibrations of consciousness that we can perceive: physical, energetic, emotional/mental, intuitive/spiritual, and pure consciousness. Meditation helps us integrate pure consciousness, and become awake to all our layers and to our connection to everything in the universe."
Andrea and I met through a worldwide organisation that coordinates free public meditations in cities all over the globe, we are both proud conductors of Medmob meditations in our cities. ~ Dawn
