For new and experienced meditators

Meditation balances the inner world of thought and feeling and the outer world of people and objects. Some meditation techniques uplift feeling and emotions, others calm agitated thoughts, some teach us to bear the most painful tragedies and some empower the capacity to function effectively. Some of us need to strengthen our emotions and grow emotionally, some of us need to give up addictions, some of us need to discover the meaning and purpose of life, some of us need spiritual sustenance, and some of us need to deepen understanding.
