Meditation and contemplative practices are common to most spiritual traditions. As a practice it traces its roots back to the time of the historical Buddha, and it begins with simple, yet not easy, practices of following breath or other objects of attention.
Gradually, with our intention to commit to regular sitting, we become more accepting and receptive, where even “insight” arises into the nature of being human. Some say: when the mind is still, compassion flows just as a tiny river naturally flows towards great oceans.
While the styles and forms practiced differ, its application is universal.
