"Go placidly amid the noise and haste, and remember what peace there may be in silence."
- MAX EHRMAN
Meditation, in the most general sense, is a practice that takes the mind from the noise and chaos of the external world - to calmer levels of stillness, in the interior being.
The type of meditation taught at Zentures Wellness is a mantra based meditation technique originating from the ancient Vedic tradition in the wisdom of India. The mantras used are primordial sounds - the most basic, most essential sounds of nature. These are determined based on your birth date and time. The meditation is silent - using the mantra as a tool to disconnect from the activity of life.
Meditation is actually the most simple process - involving only sitting comfortably, being able to close your eyes, and being able to think a thought. Spoiler alert! THAT’S IT!! No paraphernalia, no equipment or special clothing - just you and your intention to sit in quietness.
The profound effects of Primordial Sound Meditation are truly transformational. By quietening the body and mind, one achieves a deep, restful rejuvenation; connecting to your inner stillness also connects you to your source - your source of inspiration, creativity, vitality, and joy. Meditation is the most powerful and most natural antidote to stress; it helps guide us out from the rut of routine and past conditioning - towards developing our awareness of conscious choice making to better serve our authenticity. With regular practice, meditation reawakens balance, tranquility and compassion. It is recommended for anyone who wishes to enjoy deeper peace, greater freedom, and mastery of life.
Primordial Sound Meditation can be easily learned in four lessons over the period of 7 - 10 days. Each lesson is approximately 1.5 - 2 hours long. By the completion of this course you will gain: an understanding of the principles of meditation, how to use your mantra effectively, all the practical aspects to build a successful and lasting meditation practice and, explore the higher states of consciousness. In addition, you will be practicing meditation on your own several times and have the opportunity to experience at least 2 group meditations.
