Meditation Frequently Asked Questions

How do you meditate?

The easiest way to mediate is to sit or lie comfortably and quietly while focusing on nothing but your breath and how your body moves while you breathe.

What should happen when you meditate?

When you meditate, activity in the parietal lob, the gatekeeper for the senses, should slow down. This reduces the flow of incoming information to a trickle.

It’s best to wear loose and comfortable clothing for meditation. You should especially avoid any restrictive clothing, particularly around the chest or abdomen, to ensure your clothing does not interfere with your meditation sessions.
