One of the most important practices of Ayurveda is meditation. It is a technique for going beyond the chatters of the mind into a quieter level of awareness, until we experience the pure silence within.
Meditation in addition to health benefits, allowed me to really discover myself. Through everyday practice , I was able to go beyond the limited identity that the mind created of and for me, and was able to experience my true self. I have often found when I don’t begin my day with meditation, I don't feel grounded and calm. It brings me inner peace and really helped me get through the brutal treatments of chemotherapy.
