Meditation is fast gaining recognition worldwide. According to CBS News on August 27, 2003, “more and more doctors recommend it”. It has been shown to help suppress depression, manage pain, increase longevity, invigorate the immune system, and lower blood pressure.
TIME Magazine devoted an issue to meditation in their August 2003 issue, citing its increasing popularity and scientific studies that indicate its positive impact on physical and mental health.
Studying this meditation in Sydney you will find out how and why it is used to quickly relax the body and calm the mind. It offers simple, practical and effective techniques which you can make use of easily into your daily life. Meditation is the normal and natural state of being. It is not forced or unnatural, it simply happens spontaneously if we can quiet our mind, therefore providing many benefits for mind and body.
People are attracted to meditation practice mainly for stress relief and peace of mind, but it can go beyond that to a means for discovering for yourself the answers to deep questions through your own direct inner experience.
There are numerous physiological, psychological and spiritual benefits of meditation. The primary benefit of meditation is stress relief. The deep rest experienced during practice allows the body to naturally dissolve stress and strain. After the session, students feel less stressed and notice that they deal more calmly with tense situations. When stress is reduced in the nervous system during meditation, benefits like better sleep and clearer thinking also naturally develop.
Do I need to be in a specific religion to attend a lesson?
We have no particular religious affiliation and are considered religion-neutral. We only give instructions of the meditation technique.
Will there be any physical exercise involved, such as yoga?
No. The lesson focuses on meditation alone. (Unless combined with the Wing Chun lesson as agreed by the instructor and practitioner)
What do I need to bring?
Bring along a personal yoga mat, cushions or yoga blocks are optional. Some prefer to use a towel for leg or back covering if one gets chilly during meditation.
How should I wear?
Comfortable clothing you would wear to a fitness session.
What should I expect from a typical lesson?
Lesson starts with a discussion of the practice, as you begin to settle into a comfortable position. You can sit on a chair, stool or on the floor, this is a personal preference. Lying down is not recommended as sleep usually follows quickly. We begin the meditation by being aware of your natural breath.
When the meditation practice has started, you listen to the voice of the instructor’s voice as it guides you through the techniques. Each practice is divided into two sections; we work with a technique and afterwards just sit in the quiet the practice has created. We then move onto the next technique. Our focus with each technique is to discipline the mind to focus on one action at one time. Ending the lesson will be questions-and-answers and a short talk covering the basics of meditation, emphasising how these can be applied to daily life.
Where are the classes?

How long does it take to notice the benefits?
Usually after the class most people feel relaxed, and calm. Meditation is a lifelong practice, it is something that we integrate into our daily lives. The benefits will increase with continual practice.
