Sitting Meditation

Sitting Meditation

The practice of sitting meditation is a powerful tool for calming the mind. Though it is the foundation of Buddhist teachings, need not be practiced within a religious context.

Shamatha, in Sanskrit, means peace.  The practice of shamatha sitting meditation is a simple method using the breath and awareness in order to focus the mind. Sitting still for shamatha meditation involves following the breath and observing the contents of the mind. A precise technique will be presented to provide a reference point, enabling you to experience resting the mind. Once your mind is tamed, then you have choices about where to focus it. What a relief not to have to be dragged down or constantly distracted by an unruly mind!
