Meditation is an ancient science that has been practiced in the East for centuries and is rapidly gaining in popularity in the West. Meditation has proven to be a useful tool for personal development, stress management, health, and well-being. A consistent practice of meditation can provide a number of benefits and improvement for people from all walks of life including health, quality of life, and personal relationships. Meditation can also help you to develop concentration, willpower, intuition and bring you greater peace of mind and happiness.
You do not need much in the way of equipment to meditate. The most important thing for sitting meditation is to keep your spine erect and make accommodations for the body to the extent that you are not distracted by pain or discomfort and that are ideal for relaxing the body. A chair, cushion, meditation bench is all that is necessary.
