As my yoga practice deepens so does my meditation practice...the two have become one...as I have said so many times I am an innate worrier and both yoga but especially meditation helps calm my turbulent mind...it quietens my mind. The essence of yoga is body, mind and spirit. The method of meditation I use is passage meditation I have followed the teachings of Indian Spiritual Teacher Eknath Easwaran for a number of years now...with passage meditation you train your attention, drawing together the scattered threads of what you think, feel, say and do. My gorgeous daughter took this photo of me in Croatia last year and it is a favourite of mine...I didn't know she had taken it and that makes me smile.
Eknath Easwaran says: "Keep meditating, and your passages will become lifelines, taking you to the source of wisdom deep within and then guiding you through the challenges of daily life...this is the secret of meditation: we become what we meditate on."
I can't recommend the teachings of this wonderful, highly respected man enough...

much as I do.
