About This Course

Meditation simply means use my mind to reflect upon or study, to exercise the mind in thought or contemplation. What I think about determines my state of mind. It determines how I feel, speak and act. Using the Journey Within approach I simply improve the quality of my thoughts. When I change the quality of my thoughts to a more peaceful and positive level, my state of mind improves, I feel empowered to achieve my life’s goals and my journey starts. Peace is the internal experience of a calm, focused and creative mind revealed in my thoughts, moods, attitude, words and actions. Thoughts are my most imperishable and valuable treasure. These sessions will explore ways to preserve this treasure and make my thoughts more peaceful and positive. Like any skill, meditation requires practice to achieve satisfying results. More and more people are adding some kind of meditation to their daily routine either as an effective antidote to stress, or as a simple method of relaxation. By doing a little meditation every day, it soon becomes a natural and easy habit, which generously rewards me for the effort it involves.


This course is both for experienced meditators and those who are new to meditation.
