Learn to Meditate Regularly with Your Spine Straight: Guided Meditations from Art of Living

Posted: June 13, 2018

The word meditation bears different meanings for different people. For some, meditation means concentration, while for others, meditation refers to contemplation and reflection.

According to Guru Dev Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, founder of the Art of Living, meditation is “de-concentration,” and a regular practice of it leads to the ultimate yogic state of Samadhi, or transcendence. While many desire to learn how to meditate, actually finding a style that feels effortless and enjoyable can take time.

Why use guided meditations?

For beginners or those who prefer meditating with the instruction of a teacher or master, guided meditations are an ideal gateway to establishing your own independent practice. In fact, meditation becomes completely effortless when it’s done with the guidance of a master.

In daily life, we often identify with our body and the physical world. Guided meditation takes us away from the physical level to the level of the spirit, making our spiritual journey faster and more effortless. Regular practice of meditation transforms not only the practitioner’s life, but also changes the environment around the meditator.
