$197.00

Very few people know what meditation is, despite its popularity. Most people think you sit cross-legged and say OM, or you imagine something which gives you peace, satisfaction or extreme relaxation.  It is actually a state of awareness or consciousness that you can be in, whether you are doing daily activities or sitting formerly in meditation.  It is a state of profound, deep peace that occurs when the mind is calm and silent, yet completely alert. This in itself is the beginning of a huge transformation that takes us to amazing heights of awareness.
