Interested in meditation? Then you've come to the right place. MeditationExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on meditation techniques, practices and stress relief and thus provide a comprehensive UK resource on this subject.

Meditation is increasingly being used to combat the stresses of modern life and has been shown to be very successful. In fact, the importance of meditation to a person's quality of life is often overlooked.

Not only does meditating on a daily basis enable you to clear away tensions and stress which inevitably crop up in our every day lives but recent research shows that it can have distinct medical benefits, such as helping people who suffer from high blood pressure, which puts you at much higher risk of heart disease and strokes.

Contrary to popular belief, meditating does not have to take the form of the stereotypical image of a long-bearded hippy in lotus position, surrounded by sitar music or a complex process practiced by Tibetan monks; in fact, it is a simple activity which can be easily incorporated into daily life, with no equipment or special tools required, other than perhaps some suitable music if desired.

Through a series of interesting features and articles with practical advice, we introduce you to the different meditation traditions, forms and techniques of meditation. The site has a section on the Benefits of Meditation, as well as how meditation can help Mind, Body & Soul.

On a more practical note, we also introduce you to Meditation Equipment, Meditation Techniques and commonly asked questions, such as "How do I switch off?" and meditating with music. Finally, a section on Health Issues covers the link between meditation and health - and a Reader Stores section enables you to share real-life stories on how meditation helped overcome problems.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.
