The easiest way to understand meditation is to think of how you are when sitting quietly in contemplation, repose, or restfulness. It’s that perfect moment when you don’t have 20 different thoughts racing through your head at one time: no to-do lists, no replays of conversations, no jumps to the next minute of your day. It’s that rare moment when you look at a leaf on a tree and see only the leaf, and nothing else. You are in the present.

Now imagine 10-to-20 minutes of that one perfect moment.


That’s the basis of meditation, and guided meditation expands on that foundation to help individuals magnify their capabilities.  

Persons of nearly every culture and faith use some form of meditation. Just as yoga is not a religion, meditation is not a religion, although many faiths incorporate this moment of perfect stillness and awareness to help people explore the depths of their beliefs. Still others use guided meditation to bring the active mind to a standstill, so that it may broaden their overall consciousness
