Meditation is a time-tested practice of focus and concentration which can lead to experiences beyond ordinary consciousness, including serenity, clarity, compassion, and present moment awareness.
Blessings of love and respect we offer to all in times past and present who have opened the doors of wisdom, reuniting all beings with their intrinsic purity.
