Seated meditation practice that helps students explore their daily lives. It offers insights into how to live more peacefully and fully. The Latin root of the word meditation, mederi, means “to heal.” In our practice of meditation it does not mean thinking about how to fix the mind but how to be one with it. Meditation is the way to bring us back to ourselves, where we can really experience, explore, and be with ourselves. In stillness and silence of seated meditation, we glimpse and return to that deep inner nature that we have lost sight of in the busyness and distraction of our minds and lives.
