What is meditation?

It is a skill of paying attention in a restful way to the flow of life in your body. The practice may engender a higher state of consciousness. Meditation is recognized as a component of almost all religions, and has been practiced for over 5,000 years.

iMeditation at Paya Bay

iPod + iTunes = iMeditation iMeditation consist of using the latest technology to begin or continue a meditation practice. By 'new technology' we mean specifically the iPod. You can purchase and download guided meditations at the online iTunes Store or other online music services. Once you have these guided meditations on your iPod, all you are really missing then is a great location to undertake your inner journey. Paya Bay offers you several awesome spots for meditation. One of the best is Lil' Bay Beach right after sunset. The sound of the waves and the balmy Caribbean breeze will enhance your meditation experience.

Spiritual Benefits of Meditation

Many individuals who initially learn meditation for its self-regulatory aspects find that as their practice deepens they are drawn more and more into the realm of the "spiritual."
