What is Modern Meditation?
Science is now confirming
What yogis have known for thousands of years; a consistent daily meditation practice is one of the most important gifts you can give to yourself, others and your community.
Meditation can reduce stress and anxiety. It helps enhance energy, improves sleep, builds mental resilience and clarity. It eases negative thoughts and emotions and enhances positive ones. Meditation can even optimise your work performance helping to improve focus, creativity and energy.
This is because meditation practice will help you see and act in the world differently. You access higher states of being expressed through your doing - a deeper consciousness and awareness that is the source of your natural insight, sense of purpose and creativity. You awake to a new sense of optimism and momentum in your life.
You will radiate love, joy, kindness, connectivity and compassion.
What is Modern Meditation?
In the UK, beanddo is at the forefront of Modern Meditation training, providing a unique and highly accessible form of meditation.
Modern Meditation differs from more traditional forms in three ways:
- Incorporation of contemporary science of wellbeing and mindset techniques used to underpin meditation practice
- An effective combination of techniques, devised by Mick Timpson over a 30 year period of active applications and refinement, which ultimately combine to form a single unified and effective meditation practice
- Separation of techniques normally associated to more traditional meditation into a completely non-secular practice
In short, modern science is now confirming what meditation practitioners and spiritual philosophers have known for thousands of years: that a regular simple meditation practice brings huge changes to how we see, respond and operate in the world. Meditation has significant physical, emotional and mental benefits which are not actually the goal of meditation but rather the powerful by-products of regular practice.
It's now well documented that a regular meditation practice will engender:
- A reduction in stress and anxiety
- The nurturing of natural positivity and happiness
- The strengthening of purpose and resilience
- Increased insight and clarity
- Improved focus and concentration
- Improved overall energy levels and health
It is important to note that beanddo Modern Meditation is not reinventing this ancient science of wellbeing and growth. After more than 30 years of teaching and practice, as the founder of beanddo founder I have designed a process that refines and shapes the way it is delivered and practised to best fit the challenges of the modern world around us.
Our passion at Beanddo is to train individuals and organisations to use Modern Meditation as a real world, day-to-day application, and reap the many psychological and physiological benefits according to their individual needs. This makes our meditation a relevant, engaging and flexible, contemporary practice, designed to help empower anyone and everyone, whatever they do and wherever they are
Going with what works
There are no bells, no mantras to remember, or complicated breathing techniques to master. Similarly, there is no dogma, no right or wrong way and you don't have to believe anything. The only tenet is to practice meditation and trust that the rest of the benefits and insights will organically follow. No special equipment is required. All you need is a body that breathes, a mind that thinks, an undisturbed room and a chair to sit on - Modern Meditation with beanddo will take care of the rest.
