Frequently Asked Questions:

Consciously Resting Meditation is a simple mental technique practiced sitting quietly with eyes closed. The goal is to do less and less until the natural tendencies of the mind and body that begin to heal and purify do the rest.
The technique of consciously resting teaches you to focus on specific sounds and allows you to relax while your mind has a chance to calm down. This meditation technique has been used in practices for thousands of years. Consciously Resting Meditation is positive, rejuvenating and relaxing for both the mind and body.
You can practice Consciously Resting Meditation anywhere. The most effective place would be in the quietest spot in your home or dorm.
It is recommended that you consciously rest twice a day - twenty minutes first thing in the morning and twenty minutes in the early evening (between 5 - 8 p.m.). This will depend on your schedule. If you work the graveyard shift, your first meditation may be at 10 p.m. and your second meditation around 4 a.m. If you don’t have twenty minutes, use the time you have available. Any time that you have to devote to Consciously Resting Meditation will be beneficial.
By definition, pure consciousness is thoughtlessness, yet you are still awake and aware, with no thoughts, noise, problems, pain, etc. However, you cannot force this experience to happen. If your constantly thinking "Am I relaxing?", then you're probably not and won't be getting the full benefits from Consciously Resting Meditation.
