Thich Nhat Hanh, a Vietnamese Buddhist monk and peace activist, once said, “Meditation can help us embrace our worries, our fear, our anger; and that is very healing. We let our own natural capacity of healing do the work.”
For thousands of years people have used meditation to receive profound benefits on many levels — mentally, emotionally and spiritually. It’s a powerful practice that can be done by anyone, anywhere using your own natural capacity to heal.
Yet, there are still many people who dismiss the practice believing it’s too New Age, they think it’s pointless or they simple don’t have the time. In other words, they’re skeptical of the benefits of meditation.
