There are many misconceptions about meditation and it is a word that has come to be used loosely and inaccurately in the modern world. Meditation has been practiced by many different cultures and religions for thousands of years. Meditation is, first and foremost, a contemplative practice as a means for resting and focusing and transforming the mind. Meditation cultivates self-awareness, and provides the optimum conditions for practicing the skill of mindfulness.
In meditation, the mind is clear, relaxed, and inwardly focused. At first, this practice might seem a little unusual but practiced on a regular basis meditation can bring a person’s mind back into balance and we gain new insights and behaviours.
The meditation at our Hiru resorts takes place under the guidance of a Buddhist munch from a nearby monastery. During the session, you will practice different breathing techniques and mindfulness that contribute to the deep relaxation. Thus, meditation is an important component of your Ayurveda treatment, for it helps your body and mind to rest. Meditation is suitable for all Ayurveda types.
