”Kinda like when you have to shut your computer down, just sometimes when it goes crazy, you just shut it down and when you turn it on, it’s okay again. That’s what meditation is to me.”

~Ellen DeGeneres

Learn to Meditate at Charleston Meditation Center

Develop a Regular Practice At our Charleston Meditation Center over 8 Weeks

 Many people want to learn to meditate knowing there is something to it that really draws them. Perhaps it is the idea of developing a more spiritual aspect to their lives. Our Charleston Meditation Center may just be the answer!

While we know without a doubt that we need something like meditation to balance out our lives, or find out why we don’t feel content, the actual practice of meditation can seem hopeless. Who even knows if they are doing it right?

The Level 1 Meditation Course at meditate was specifically created for people who have similar feelings; people who feel drawn to meditation but also feel lost and somewhat nervous that they won’t be able to sustain a practice.

Click here to view the course syllabus and see how each of the 8 lessons is laid out. This course provides very clear direction on what to do, what to expect in the early sessions, why it gets hard at times and most importantly how to train your mind to allow the meditation to happen. It’s not about trying with all your will power to have no thoughts. We don’t teach it that way for the simple reason that it would take most people years to accomplish such a feat and such an exercise won’t bring you deeper peace.

The peace from meditating comes because you get to know yourself more deeply. You get in touch with what’s important to you, what your deeper feelings are, what truly makes you feel joyful as well as a way to process difficult situations. We all have them so let’s figure out a mature and speedy way to get through things when they turn hard!

Taking the time to sit still and address your inner life is what cultivates peace and balance. But don’t expect your mind and emotions to cooperate immediately. This is why having a teacher is so valuable. There are many pitfalls along the way where we can get derailed and discouraged. Our Charleston meditation teacher will give you guidance so you can understand the different levels of consciousness that you encounter while in a meditative state.
