Connect your body and mind at Carnoustie - Meditation

If we know the divine art of concentration, if we know the divine art of meditation, if we know the divine art of contemplation, easily and consciously we can unite the inner world and the outer world.   – Sri Chinmoy
Meditation is the state of existing fully in the here and now. Naturally arriving at this stage through the practice of “one-pointedness”, clears the cluttered mind of conflicting or random thoughts. This calm state promotes relaxation, builds internal energy or life force (qi, ki, prana, etc.) and helps develop compassion, love, patience, generosity and forgiveness. Its ultimate objective is to enable its practitioner to enjoy an indestructible sense of well-being while engaging in any life activity. Meditation takes you into the present moment, the only place where life exists. The way we breathe in and out; right now, right here!
