About Meditation

Meditation isn’t just one thing. There are many techniques of meditation, each with various benefits.

Your mind is a muscle, and meditation is a way of working it out, with each technique working on a slightly different part of our mind. But rather than go on and on about the benefits, how-to’s, styles, etc… I thought it would be more practical to simply share some links in order to allow for your own discovery.  As time goes on, I will add more to this list, but this is what is available now.

Here’s an article for those who might be questioning the usefulness of meditation. Or, if you’d rather have it in infographic form, go for it. Either way, numerous studies continue to espouse the benefits of meditation, even if it has a bit of a PR problem.
