Meditation is not what you think

Meditation is not what you think

… Watch the sunset on a beach. Watch the waves hit the shore. Absorb in their sounds and fury. These are a form of meditation, according to Breathwork India.

When I went for a meditation retreat, I sat on a chair most of the times. I had problems with my knees then. The guru told me I can meditate even when sleeping!

I can understand why I felt so peaceful for hours doing my pottery works! It was my solace, especially when I was feeling down.

  5. Oh, I would love to go on a meditation retreat! I am so tightly wound up…an tighter I’d be a pocket watch! Won’t keep me from still trying. Pottery is also on my To Do Wish List! It sounds very calming.

    If we can time our breathing to the lap of peaceful waves,
