During our MEDITATE4FREEDOM
events, you will briefly step out of this “race” and switch from a DO-mode to a BE-mode. During these sessions, you will experience what it’s like to simply sit still and fully enjoy the present moment with your undivided attention. Our meditation leader Jeroen works with a modern mix of different styles and techniques brought to you in an understandable way. Inner freedom, however, takes practice – and meditation is practice!
events can therefore be used to get acquainted with the technique, or to rediscover your motivation when your discipline has faded. Everyone can learn it and it’s a different experience every time!
You will experience that you are not your thoughts and they don't reflect reality. You will learn to look at stressful situations with a certain distance and from a neutral stance. Next, you will pay attention to the moment without judging it immediately, avoiding it or getting carried away. Meditation is a powerful means, which you can apply throughout your life. With each and every step, you shall experience more happiness, peace and freedom!
Throughout centuries, meditation has proven to provide a safe haven from harm. Tortured Tibetan monks use their traditional meditation techniques to overcome the worst of hardships, which human minds and bodies can possibly imagine and endure, enabling them to stay free from suffering. Thanks to their meditation practice, bitterness, miss-balance and hatred, have lost their grip. It helps them to keep their calm composure and continue compassionately on the path of purification and freedom, however rough the ride.
So, why is it that we, already, get agitated and carried away by itching mosquito bites, when Wi-Fi is down, someone doesn't call back, we miss a bus or an appointment? The answer lies in meditation or better said, to simply start, and the regular practice of, meditation. In order to grow inside, first, you have to do something - to, later, do nothing... that something is make the choice, time and dedication, that nothing is, meditation.
It is proven that when everyone feels free and safe to truly be themselves, the world will have less war, oppression, aggression, conflicts, arguments and social problems. Tolerance, compassion and kindness are a welcome side effect of meditation and this is why MEDITATE4FREEDOM does not only create more peaceful people but also a better world. Wouldn't you do this for you, the world and 4FREEDOM?
