Today, more than ever before, people are searching for personal empowerment -- empowerment to maintain self control, clarity of mind and equanimity in a topsy-turvy world. Life can be tough, and filled with tough decisions. We can find ourselves on a daily basis having to deal with difficult people and situations in our homes, schools and places of work.
Meditation is an ancient discipline for bringing stillness and clarity to an agitated mind. Of equal importance, as well, are the tools it provides for maintaining a peaceful mind, even in the midst of the roughest storms into which life can hurl us. Meditation has been tested and proven by thousands of people down through the centuries to be an effective tool for attaining self mastery and empowerment.
The ancient samurai warriors of Japan practiced meditation because they knew that it would condition them to be calm and focused when facing down opponents in life and death situations. For them, meditation could literally make the difference between dying and surviving.
While most of us will never, hopefully, have to face an opponent armed with a sword, we must still be warriors in a very real sense every single day. The samurai knew that if he did not have control over his own mind, the battle with his enemy would be already lost. Like the samurai, how we fare in life's battles from day to day is determined, primarily, by the situation going on in the space between our ears. That is why the calm, inner poise and self control that meditation can provide is real empowerment.

The subject of meditation is presented in a straightforward, de-mystified, non-sectarian way.
