Take Refuge In Silence

 

All sound arises out of Silence
and dissolves into Silence.

All thought arises out of Silence

      and dissolves into Silence.

The universe arises out of Silence
and dissolves into Silence.

Suffering arises out of Silence
and dissolves into Silence.

The unbounded spaciousness

          of Silence,
filled with the clear light

          of Awareness,
dissolves the roots of pain

          and sorrow.

Take refuge in Silence and know
unshakeable joy.

Anam Cara Meditation Foundation

"The world we have made as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far, creates problems that we cannot solve at the same level of consciousness at which we created them... We shall require a substantially new manner of thinking if humankind is to survive."
             Albert Einstein, Nobel Laureate  

Meditation develops that "new manner of thinking" which many discover is also an ancient, timeless mode of unity awareness, known to all great spiritual traditions.  In that state, freed from the confines of the ordinary ego mind, we naturally feel lovingly and compassionately connected to all life, knowing that to harm another is to harm ourselves.  

The mission of the non-profit organization, The Anam Cara Meditation Foundation is simply to teach meditative practices from many traditions to everyone interested and thereby change the level of consciousness informing individual and group actions. 

Meditation opens the door to the radically different type of consciousness necessary not just for survival, but for the total relief of suffering and the unprecedented flourishing of human creativity and compassion of which we are capable.  Meditation gives people access to the inner resources necessary to accomplish all this. 

In addition to teaching meditative disciplines, Anam Cara is dedicated to making meditation instruction available to those who may not even be aware of its tremendous benefits.  These benefits, which have substantial scientific research behind them, include improved cardio-vascular health, reduced stress and anxiety, improved immune responses, more positive mood, increased focus, enhanced performance, better anger management, reduced cholesterol levels, reduced blood pressure, improved sleep, and the list goes on and on.  Even the magazine U.S. News and World Report recommended meditation as one of the top two things one could do to ensure one’s health and wellbeing.  Meditation holds the key to enhanced health, optimal performance, peak mental fitness, spiritual fulfillment and true peace.

On this site you will find free meditation instructions and a free audio file of a guided meditation.  There are also Events listed for the meditation programs offered, including a weekly meditation group.  A monthly free e-newsletter is offered to support your meditation practice with inspiring quotes, articles and program information.
