Meditation Extract from our Teacher Training Manual. 

We will describe here a simple approach to meditation based in awareness of the body, breath and heart/mind. Each element is important and we need to attend to the whole in order to create a skilful meditation practice. Take your time to gather yourself up in the practice. As you proceed you will find you become more concentrated, present and clear. Relax, do not force your mind or body. It is helpful to see your practice time in three stages; beginning, middle and end. Spend some minutes arriving, tuning in and settling. Then have a definite period of making an effort to cultivate awareness. Finally have a period of some minutes winding down and letting go of the practice. The process of gathering yourself together, integrating body, heart and mind begins, over and over again.
