Meditation with Sister Copeland
RSCJ Dee Copland takes us through her meditation session
The practice of meditation is ancient universal wisdom and teaches us to become present to the present moment. Meditation is a practice of experience – the experience of the whole of us – physical and mental. It brings us to stillness, silence, and wholeness. Meditation is a way of prayer – a way of prayer without word, thoughts, images.
Daily fidelity to the practice is basically all that is required. Incorporating meditation into one’s life is a discipline, a daily discipline, and eventually a discipline of joy.
Children take quite easily to meditation as they are accustomed to living in the present – the present moment. They have not yet lost that joy of life. If we can help children to know and to experience meditation, we are giving them a life gift.
