Because meditation has been around for thousands of years, interwoven throughout different cultures and religions there is no one fits all definition. If you want so, the overall aim of meditation is to get beyond the reflexive thinking mind into a deeper state of relaxation which serves as a very effective method to reduce stress for example.


There is a wide spectrum of meditation practices coming from different backgrounds such as

  • mindfulness meditation
  • taoist meditation
  • metta meditation
  • transcendental meditation
  • mantra based meditation
  • walking meditation
  • eating meditation

... and many more!


That allows each and everyone of us to find a style that works best for us or to experiment with various styles. One type isn't better that another, they all offer their unique benefits.

“Meditation opens the door between the conscious and subconscious minds. We meditate to enter the operating system of the subconscious, where all of those unwanted habits and behaviors reside, and change them to more productive modes to support us in our lives.”

- Dr. Joe Dispenza -

The various benefits of meditation have been experienced all over the world throughout history but now as science evolved there is more and more research and studies that show what is actually happening within our brain. I am a huge fan of Dr. Joe Dispenza who claims the purpose of meditation is to slow down your brain waves and get beyond the analytical mind to open the doorway between the conscious and subconscious mind.

Meditation helps the Body, Mind, Heart & Spirit.

Apart from the scientific, metaphysical approach I am beyond grateful for the opportunity that meditation gives us to connect with our true self, our spiritual purpose and our own intuition, wisdom and guidance to gain true insights that might help us on our life path.
