Because it works. Meditation is not a new practice. It is rooted in the oldest traditions. The value of meditation for healing, awareness and universal peace has been practiced for centuries and the benefits are numerous to the physical body, the mind and the spirit.
What is meditation? Meditation is the exercise of awareness. It is the practice of raising ones consciousness so that you can live beyond automatic thinking, feeling and doing. When we meditate we tap into our subconscious mind which is the total of our current and previous life experiences. In order to truly understand ourselves and to change our negative behavior patterns, we need to retrieve traumatic experiences and neutralize them. This allows us to create new patterns for health and healing.
In Naam we meditate to connect to the one Source, we meditate to connect with our hearts and we meditate to understand our purpose. Naam Yoga is the practice of working with breath, sound (mantra), mudras and movement in a flowing meditation.
