The ancient practice of meditation is as pertinent today as it was two millennia ago when it was discovered. Amid the turmoil of life, we all could use the scientific benefits of meditation which provides a simple yet effective and convenient way to relax your body, calm your mind, and find inner peace amongst the chaos.
Meditation allows one to observe the mind and still our thoughts, letting the mind perform at its highest levels. As Jeff Warren expressed, “Meditation forces you into a direct collision with a fundamental fact of life that is not often pointed out to us: we all have a voice in our heads.”
