Speaking from my own experience meditation is one of the greatest gifts you can give yourself in your life. It gives me the stability and confidence to cope with the daily necessities and the many challenges of modern life.
At the same time, we all hear so many different things about meditation that it can sometimes be hard to know where and how to begin: "What does it actually mean to meditate? Do I have to sit up straight? How can I deal with the avalanche of thoughts that pop up in my mind as soon as I try to be calm? Is it the goal to be calm?"
Our 10-step guide to meditation aims to answer some of the questions you might have, and to explain why meditation can have such a powerful and beneficial effect on every aspect of your lives.
Most importantly, you will get the chance to experience meditation for yourself.
With the help of videos, you will learn the basic posture, as well as some simple techniques that you can practise at home or in a traffic jam, in a boring business meeting or while watching TV.
There are no rules for following this meditation guide — you don’t have to sign up for anything.
We recommend that you go through steps 1-10 in order, but you can set your own pace, and repeat each step as many times as you want before you move on to the next one.
You can also discuss your experiences and raise any questions in our forum, our seasoned meditators are happy to support you with your meditation practice.
