“The act of meditation can be simply defined as the state of ‘focused mind’.” ~ Madeleine Marentette
There are three types of meditation relating to how thought and energy moves within the brain: Silent Meditation, Invocation Meditation and Contemplative Meditation.
Silent meditation may be the most common practice, with individuals describing the outcome as a feeling of calm-awareness. Contemplative meditation is based in reflection, inducing a continuous flow of thought, creativity, revelation and synthesis. While invocation meditation could be considered prayer, or visualization.
Grail Springs offers meditation several times a weeke from a variety of instructors and methods. The key is finding the one that best suits you and your lifestyle
