Meditation

The classical definition of meditation, dating to the time of the Buddha, is “the obstruction of thought waves in the mind.” According to this definition, written by the sage Patanjali in his Yoga Sutras, a “thought wave” is any mental event: not only a linguistic thought, but also a feeling, an image, a desire, etc.

Meditation has been practiced for thousands of years. During meditation, you focus your attention and eliminate the stream of jumbled thoughts that may be crowding your mind and causing stress. This process may result in enhanced physical and emotional well-being.

When you meditate, you clear away the information overload that builds up every day and contributes to your stress.

The Rushing to Yoga Foundation will work with you as an individual or organization to develop meditation skills.

The expected outcome is that through meditation you will:

  • Gain a new perspective on stressful situations
  • Build skills to manage your stress
  • Increase self-awareness
  • Learn to focus on the present
  • Gain clarity and peace of mind
  • Reduce negative emotions
  • Increase compassion for yourself and others
