Sue and Jobst have been practicing Meditation for a long time, have learned Meditation from a variety of sources and have been going to the Tara Institute since 2000.

Sue and Jobst aim to provide information, help and advice not only for the private life but also for the work life where Meditation is a vital tool.

Meditation describes a state of concentrated attention on some object of thought or awareness. It usually involves turning the attention inward to a single point of reference. The benefits of the practice can engender a higher state of consciousness. Meditation is recognized as a component of eastern religions, where it has been practiced for over 5,000 years. Different meditative disciplines encompass a wide range of spiritual and/or psychophysical practices which can emphasize development of either a high degree of mental concentration, or the apparent converse, mental quiescence.

The word meditation comes from the Latin meditatio, which originally indicated every type of physical or intellectual exercise, then later evolved into the more specific meaning “contemplation.”

Eastern spiritual teachings, including meditation, have been adapted and increasingly practiced in Western culture.
