How does it work?
When one gets into meditation, mainly by learning to focus on the breath, the brain starts generating lower frequency waves. These waves – such as theta and delta waves – range from 1 to 8 Hz. Subsequently, they activate different centres in our brain and our nervous system than the waves normally generated in active conscious states. Because in the latter we typically produce beta and alpha waves, which range from 9 to 40 Hz.
Meditation is not only a relaxed state, it’s a very productive rest (even if this might sound contradictory!). In which we are effortlessly training and developing the mind while enjoying what can get to, at one point, an incredibly blissful experience.
With meditation you will be able to discover the thought process from a different perspective and with a bit of practice learn to gain mastery over it. You will be amazed at how you can gradually see the effects of meditation in every practical aspect of your life. More clarity, more personal power, more wisdom.
Is this for me?
The practice of meditation doesn’t have to be linked to any specific religion, belief or lifestyle. It is a neutral tool.
The principles are scientifically validated and can be practically applied by anyone, with a pragmatic and down-to-earth approach, for better performance and enjoyment in everyday life. Furthermore, meditation is routinely used by some of the world’s most successful executives and entrepreneurs.
What do I need?
You don’t need to sit in the lotus pose. Don’t need to believe in anything esoteric (and if you do that’s also great!). You don’t need to adopt or change any religious beliefs. Nor do you need to follow any guru nor become part of any organization. Meditation is a neutral, scientifically proven technique that can be adapted to any lifestyle and all walks of life.
You just need a comfortable chair, sofa or cushion to sit with a straight spine.
