Ramana Devi Meditation
What is Meditation?
Meditation is an amazing practice, and a great tool in the search for your true Self. A journey of Self improvement would not be the same without a Meditation practice.
Meditation from Hindu philosophy means to become consciously aware of or to investigate one’s own mind. It is a process in which one withdraws the mind and senses from distractions of the world, and contemplates on a chosen object or idea with deep concentration. The effect of meditation on the mind is that you gain insightful awareness; you gain control over your responses and reactions; and come to understand the fluctuations of your mind, and the source of your suffering. Through meditation we experience space between our thoughts; we recognise that our thoughts are impermanent, and not a reflection of who it is that we really are.
This course is designed for anyone wishing to gain a high level of experience and understanding in the techniques and philosophy.
