Meditation is a simple, natural, healthy activity that absolutely anyone can do. You do not need to be interested in a religious path in order to learn and benefit from meditation. Meditation has survived for thousands of years because it works. Your own peace of mind is your birthright, and everyone has the capacity to connect with this peaceful aspect of mind.
In meditation, we learn to hold, embrace, and accept ourselves and all the ups and downs of life with gentle, loving, trust, and strength. This can be an especially helpful tool in modern times when so many of us feel stressed, anxious, overwhelmed, depressed, or need some TLC. Meditation can be an important source of the grounding, healing, resiliency, strength, and inspiration so many of us are seeking.
