What is Meditation?
Far from the popular image of a lone guru sitting crossed-legged on a mountaintop, meditation is an amazing tool that anyone can use anywhere to “increase awareness of the present moment, reduce stress, promote relaxation, and enhance personal and spiritual growth.”
Simply put, meditation is the practice of relaxing one’s body and mind by focusing on a sound, mantra, or your breathing. This alone promotes all kinds of health and mental benefits: it can lower blood pressure, boost your immune system, and calm a stressed-out nervous system. But coupled with creative visualization, meditation is also one of the most powerful ways to create profound change in your life. The Hermitage books, meditation courses, and guided recordings are designed to help you harness the power of this amazing duo.
Whether you’re looking to improve your health, relationships, or business – the programs at the Hermitage can help.
