The daily practice of meditation, they say it can replace some medication, anytime I read about it all you get is positive feedback.

So did anyone ever try this and
how was it for you and do you know anything about meditation.??

The Mindfulness approach uses meditation as a core skill. It is becoming increasing popular in psychological treatment for a number of conditions.

There is no doubt that meditation is a worthy and beneficial practice - personal, spiritual, psychological, magical, whatever you wish to call it, its just you and your body regarding one another for a time, reconnecting with yourself.

We do it as a team in work monthly and it's excellent. I love it!

I did meditation during yoga classes years ago and ended up falling a sleep, only to wake with a start, I'm not into it personally, rather take my angst out on doing stuff.

I'd love to be able to medidate but I have the concentration span of a gnat.

If I started I'd be thinking about what I was going to have for lunch within five seconds. I

I did meditation, a few different venues with few different groups. Trying to do so on me one is way to difficult. I find it easier being in a group sitting.

What meditation is is mindfulness of the moment. When or if one finds oneself drifting of into sleep or daydreams, then one just brings the attention back on a given point of focus, such as the breath, tips of ones fingers, sounds, etc.,

Even just settling just for 5 seconds, or even one second is a good start if your mindful of what your at.

Takes practice.

Yeah worth looking into I always dismissed it as religious quasi spiritualism ect, but
I was going to do Bikram yoga this year but the classes are on at gammy times and it over in Harolds Cross so the stress that would be dissolved would be gathered back with the drive through traffic.

But I am interested in doing something like this I shall report back.

My father was told to take up meditation after he had a few strokes, I think he's actually just napping.

I meditate regularly, it is part of my day. In the beginning it was v hard, 'allowing' myself the time, concentrating etc. The benefits are great and numerous!
If you have made the decision to give it a go, start small.
Suggest giving our self 3 to 5 mins quite time a day. As a beginner there are audio tracks 'guided meditations' that you might helpful

I try to set aside a few minutes each day to do meditation. The Buddhist Centre in Inchicore is a great place to learn breathing and posture techniques for deep meditation. I find that meditation helps to cleanse my mind and fend off anxiety, which is my constant enemy.

I think this beautiful piece of ambient music by Underworld is a really good tune to meditate to.

I used to meditate daily, these days I meditate around 3 times a week - it’s still an personal essential however. I suspect many people have a media in forced visual view of meditation rather than the soft casual reality, 10-50 minutes of self time, unwind, renewal and refocus.

It has real benefits however - for those that have never tried, sure give it a go

I have been so much more positive since I started.
Changed my life upside down, got rid of negative energies, divorced from a bad influence, and reconnected with a group of spiritual people who make me a better person.

I can know recommend it enough.
