Meditation is powerful and reduces the stress which creates most of our physical and emotional problems. When we are in the stillness of meditation we can leave behind the chaotic chatter of our mind and go into a deep, calming stillness which exists between our thoughts. In this space we are connected with the universe and to who we really are by letting go of the outside world. This is where our mind, body and soul come to a balance. Only 20 minutes a day of meditation gives as much benefits as several hours of sleep.
