Mindfulness Centered Meditation

7-7.45 Mondays

Finding peace in a busy and hectic world,  this could be a definition of Meditation.  Who of us would not like to do something to be more calm, less judgmental and more positive in our thoughts and attitude.It can be a help to turn off some of the programmes  running in our mind.  Something similar to the computer that  gets slower and slower the more programmes that are running.  It can actually freeze!  So too can the human brain if there are too many thoughts running simultaneously.

Meditation is a way to live more mindfully and a way of finding greater happiness, becoming less anxious and more energized. It teaches us the skills to help us focus on one thing at a time.  It helps us to pray by bringing us to stillness where we can listen to our God.
