What is Meditation?
Meditation is when you allow the mind to rest and go quiet.
When our bodies are worked really hard, we get aches and pains. We need to rest the body so it
can recuperate from the stress and physical strain we have put onto it. If we don't our bodies can
become ill which can lead to neck and back strain. When this happens we are forced to take it
easy. We have a good night's sleep and in the morning we feel rested and relaxed.

dream while we are asleep. As you can see the mind never rests. However, with meditation we
can slow the mind down and relax it to such a level that it gets the chance to have a good rest.
After practice you will be able to stop the thoughts altogether for a short time.
In times of stress and serious illness we are constantly worried, and that puts pressure on our
mind and our bodies that is no good. These two factors can lead to even more illness and more
stress. Just imagine if we rest our mind through meditation we are allowing whatever problem's
that are present in our body to heal themselves without the added stress of constantly worrying
