Our approach to meditation
Stillness, presence and witnessing
Meditation can mean a lot of things, depending on who you talk to.
For some it’s just shutting your eyes and sitting in a certain position for a certain amount of time, for others it’s the repetition of a certain mantra to achieve certain state of mind.
For us at TrueRelaxations meditation is essentially about witnessing. Just witnessing or being aware of the inner and outer aspects of yourself. This includes the world that is seemingly outside of you. In truth, all is contained in consciousness, and meditation can bring you closer to this experience and understanding.
To witness the contents of consciousness without judgement nor passion, that is to say the sensations, thoughts, feelings and how they appear and disappear. This is genuine meditation.
