Meditation and What it Can Do for Your Mind, Body, and Soul

The practice of meditation has been around for over 5,000 years, most commonly recognised as a key ingredient of Eastern religions. It was introduced into Europe in ancient Greece when Alexander, the Great, returned from India with an Indian yogi as his spiritual advisor.

Meditation is a practice that involves quieting the mind and focusing inwardly. It’s a centuries-old tradition with roots in various cultures and religions. Today, meditation has become increasingly popular worldwide, as people seek ways to manage stress, improve their overall well-being, and to find meaning in their lives.

Many people are turning to meditation in the twenty first century for the same reason the Beatles went to India, to find something that all their fame and riches could not give them. They went to find inner peace.
