Finding Time to Meditate

“We could say that meditation doesn’t have a reason or doesn’t have a purpose. In this respect it’s unlike almost all other things we do except perhaps making music and dancing. When we make music we don’t do it in order to reach a certain point, such as the end of the composition. If that were the purpose of music then obviously the fastest players would be the best. Also, when we are dancing we are not aiming to arrive at a particular place on the floor as in a journey. When we dance, the journey itself is the point, as when we play music the playing itself is the point. And exactly the same thing is true in meditation. Meditation is the discovery that the point of life is always arrived at in the immediate moment”- Alan Watts

During this busy time of year it may be  difficult to find time to meditate. But if Santa can find the time, then so can you!  Remember, meditation comes in all different shapes, styles , and can be as little as three minutes. Additionally, meditation can be done while seated, walking, driving, riding a bike, and of course during your yoga practice. The point is to clear your mind, find your breath, and center yourself. This week we will be focusing on different ways to incorporate meditation into your daily life.
Here are some tips for a seated meditation.
  • Find a quite spot.
  • Sit comfortably with blankets or even a chair.
  • Close your eyes and find your breath.
  • Allow your exhale to be twice as long as your inhale; use a natural breath between cycles.
  • After a few cycles of breath work, just allow your breathing to be effortless.
  • Imagine your favorite place to be and see it with your mind’s eye.
  • Stay here for 3-5 minutes.
  • Open your eyes and feel renewed and ready to face the day.
