MENTAL HEALTH

Mental Health

We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows like a shadow that never leaves.

Buddha

The mind is everything. What you think you become.

Buddha

You cannot have a positive life and a negative mind.

Joyce Meyer

Your body hears everything your mind says.

Naomi Judd

 

One cannot stress enough how important our mind is. It defines who we are and what we are capable of. It helps us choose wisely and lets us appreciate the beauties of this world. Simply put, our mind is the essence of our being. And our body is but a vessel for its nectar, a shrine for its divine light.

The mind is a beautiful and extraordinary thing.

…but it is also very delicate.

When the body is not well, it exhibits symptoms and the mind would recognise them. But when the mind is not well, it is so much harder to realise. Our fast-paced, competitive society is giving us daily dose of stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression. These are unfortunately accumulative. You do not truly reset to zero every morning. Rest can only help so much. And people do not really getting as much rest as they think they do. We are living in a distractive world. And physical rest is different from mental rest. More often than not, the assortment of entertainment you do after work adds more to your daily stress, anxiety, fatigue and depression. As time passes, your cup gets filled to the brim. And then it overflows. But that time, it may all be too late.

That is why meditation is more important now than ever before.

Meditation can be described as a form or mental recuperation and training, much associated with Eastern cultures. It allows the mind to relax and recover. It allows the mind to strengthen and develop. It has such a large variety of goals and purposes that the umbrella term ‘meditation’ does it little justice.

In short, meditation is great for your mental health. But you do not have to take our words for it. Below are a few external links on this subject:

Cultivation to the mind is as necessary as food to the body.

Marcus Tullius Cicero

 

Just set aside a little time every day – even once every week – and you will be amazed by how much meditation would do for you.

Aside from Tai Chi and Chi Kung, Master Lam is also proficient in the art of meditation. In his decades of practice, he had always kept his meditation private. However, the growing trend of mental health deterioration has led him to reconsider his policy.

Now, Master Lam has produced his first book which focuses on a specific mental illness – anxiety. Do not miss this opportunity to see how a master tackles such a malady. The book ‘Qigong Workbook for Anxiety’ will be launched this June.

Master Lam Jr. (his son) has also been practising meditation for numerous years. He has also taught in a number of workshops across Europe. He specialises in Taoist meditation.

In the coming future, Master Lam and son will be expanding on their meditation teaching. Please visit this website regularly to see when their meditation classes will be established.
