The ancient spiritual discipline of meditation, the core of many wisdom traditions, has integrated itself into modern life. On one level it is a powerful tool for relieving stress, maintaining health, enhancing brain development and promoting creativity. On a deeper level it is a direct pathway for our evolution as spiritual beings and discovering our indwelling divinity.
