I live what I practice – spirituality.

I have been systematically engaged in the practice and theory of spirituality for the last 28 years.

Meditation

Meditation is not a thinking process, neither relaxation, not even a set of activities oriented to an outcome.
Meditation is a tool of personal transformation, self-transcendence, and a good life.
Clinical studies confirm the following scientifically validated benefits of meditation:

  • Meditation decreases stress;
  • Meditation reduces symptoms associated with depression, anxiety disorders, pain, and insomnia;
  • Meditation enhances ability to pay attention;
  • Meditation increases quality of life.

Among the psychosomatic effects of meditation are better mental and physical recovery, mobilization of creativity, and development of emotional gentleness (Vladimír Šatura).
Spiritual effects of meditation are dependent on the approaches, methods, and tools applied.
