Learn To Meditate In A Weekend


We have been hearing more and more about the amazing powers of meditation. It reduces stress, improves concentration, increases self awareness and happiness, slows aging, enhances cardiovascular and immune health, and so much more.

As someone who is prone to being a workaholic, constantly being busy, and unable to quiet my mind enough to fall asleep quickly, I decided to give meditation a try. I had taken a meditation course years ago at the New York Open Center when I lived in New York City, but the six-week course was cancelled after the second week because the instructor was in a car accident (was that a sign?).

Of course I was never sure if I was doing it right — attempting to concentrate on breathing in and out, all of the while conjuring photos of Julia Roberts in my mind as she was attempting to meditate for hours at an Ashram in India in the movie Eat, Pray, Love.
