Meditation is a wonderful practice. It dates back to almost 2,500 years. It carries some astonishing truths and provides powerful insights. But, it is almost 2,500 years old. It was created for a world that simply does not exist today, and not for the realities of the 21st century world you face.
The philosophy at the core of meditation is still as relevant as it has ever been. The ideas of compassion and loving kindness have never been needed more than they are today. But the teachings and techniques of most lineages do not always fit with the realities of the world you live in.
The beauty of Modern Meditation is that it teaches you how to weave traditional meditation techniques together to deliver a practice that works with your world and your life, rather than forcing you to change your life to fit the technique of whatever lineage you are trying to fit into.
Today, you have a global view of the world’s problems brought instantly to your doorstep. You are aware of what is going on across the world. You know you have to save for retirement, whenever that will come…
Modern Meditation was refined with an understanding that you should not have to change your life to bring meditation in to your life.
When you learn to layer such methods as Vipassanna, Samatha, Pranayama, Zen, Vedic and others, you will discover a practice that you can take off your cushion and bring it into your life no matter what the world throws at you. It will work for you and for your mind on your terms.
As Jeff wrote in his 2010 book The Simple Truth: Meditation for the Modern World, meditation is not an alternative to a nap. It is not about floating on a Nirvanic cloud. It is a focused approach to understanding and managing your thoughts and your emotions. It is a tool that helps you to be aware of the quality of your thoughts so that you can let them go when you want to.
When you learn to do that in a safe, environment you will be able to do that anywhere and any time in the real world you live in. You will be able to take an active role in your life in a deeper, healthier, more passionate way.
You do not need to change your life, nor should you have to fit into someone else’s idea of what your practice should be. You can work with a community of people who understand the realities of today’s world to develop a practice that is right for your life, on your terms.
Meditation is a simple practice. It is also a powerful one. It will help you overcome 40,000 years of wiring and a lifetime of programming that is now holding you back. It will help you live your life, your way.
Let us show you how to sit properly and experience the difference that Modern Meditation can make.
