Meditation opens the senses, clears the mind and releases the body to the pinnacle of a state of relaxation and heightened awareness. Now more than ever, in our globalised society where everything and everyone is more interconnected, a place of solidarity and tranquillity becomes increasingly necessary. Living in the contemporary era means our lives have become more complicated with commitments to work, family and friends filling up our daily schedules. Time for oneself, however, is seemingly lost, and this loss of freedom can exacerbate stress levels, leading to anxiety, depression and other mental issues. A place of meditation can benefit the mind, body and soul, and it is through meditation that we can release our burdens to achieve revitalisation from a feeling of peace and harmony. I want to explore meditation through the four themes of Refuge, Pilgrimage, Memory and Mā 間 (relationality).
