In each of our lives there have been times when we have experienced a deeper sense of connectedness, wholeness, and belonging than we ordinarily find. Most likely those extraordinary moments of deeper wisdom, love, and aliveness came unexpectedly.
But why are these moments so rare? Generally speaking, our attention is quite scattered. We are lost in our thoughts and only superficially in touch with the reality and intensity of our inner and outer experiences.
Similarly, we all too often wait until the whispers of tension in our bodies, our relationships, and our world become heart-wrenching screams of pain before we wake up and fully acknowledge them or attempt to restore harmony and balance.
With so may people needlessly suffering and dying from preventable stress-related diseases, millions of people are searching for wiser, kinder, and less self-destructive ways of living in today's world.
When we consider the enormous costs incurred by our bodies, our minds, our relationships, and our environment, it is no surprise that relaxation, concentration, and meditation techniques are being more widely embraced as vital for enhancing the quality of our health, work, relationships, and peace of mind.
