Why Practice Meditation?
While there are many ways to meditate, the goal of meditation is singular: to create mindful awareness and expanded consciousness. Meditation brings us to present moment awareness, helps to process emotions and the mind's clutter and stress, bringing us into greater acceptance of life and connection to one's self.
