The Ancient Secret of the Rishis
Meditation is the flowering of divine consciousness within the human being. By learning to witness our inner world, we allow thoughts, feelings and emotions to transform into insight, love and bliss. Through establishing a meditation practice we can better receive and respond to the impressions that come in through our senses, letting go of reactivity, fear, anger, and attachments that hold us back from living every step of life in peace and grace.
