"Meditation...the PRACTICE(s) of finding personal peace."

I hope meditation becomes a natural moment to moment experience like breathing and BEING.

Meditation on your own.

At times, unfamiliar noises can be very disruptive as we are curious beings.  Practicing at home, with less unknown distractions can be easier to find that inner connection, and internal peace we are seeking. 

At home, or in nature, aloneness gives one a guilt-free release of surfaced emotional flows, allowing a greater sense of self-actualization as meditation is not always a pleasant, still experience.  Meditation as a "practice" helps one MOVE through surfaced moments (instead of the avoidance of emotional rises by way of various common social addictions such as phone, tv, alcohol and drugs),  Being at home or in a personal space to release and move through off balancing emotions is vital for personal balance.

Also, and this is a biggie, home helps you be in total physical comfort saving you from fidget guilt (which eventually goes away over time).  You get to find your ideal position(s), wearing what you want, not caring about ego.  A mental freedom from judgement energy occurs.  All you have to focus on is relaxing yet aligning your "being".

The limitations

Being alone can be difficult to surface and sustain the texture of "connectedness".  It is simply too easy to give up, be distracted and/or rush through an experience as there is no accountable presence.

We are our better selves with and because of others.

Guided Meditation

Finding sincere sources to be able to tap into during flows of emotional stagnancy and mental stubbornness that arise is highly recommended. 

Guided meditation sources such as APPs, site LINKS and/or YouTube videos are helpful. These modern options are a great way to get one started on the commitment portion. Being guided in-person or online is most inspiring and best for when STARTING.

The benefits 

Sometimes the thought "Am I doing this right?" lingers, having a guide helping you shift stagnate thoughts, conceptions and perceptions.

The limitations

You'll need several different guides, as you level up, shift and expand. sincerity intends to offer you a place where you can find what you need, at the moment that is best, for the place you are in.

Here is an article for the BEST PODCASTS for Meditation 2020. 


Verywell Mind, where you can find trusted information about mental health.

Not one individual nor single source will hold ALL the knowledge you'll need.

Meditation with others

There are various types of group sessions, including and not limited to: localized wellness centres, mediation classes, yoga studios, gym options, spa offerings and so on. Temples, mosques and such places of worship. Excursions, retreats, classes and online group events and programs.  

The benefits

When humans gather, all is amplified, the energy is more powerful, and things can get super-charged. Plus it is part of the human make-up, to have a longing, a need to gather and be part of something bigger than our human experience.  Humans are meant to elevate and evolve, it is in our cellular make-up. 

The limitations

People can be very...distracting, and their energy might be...displeasing, let's say.  Finding a group which resonates with your personal vibe may be a challenge.  When you find a collective that clicks with your focused energy, that, can be an amplifying moment for personal power and group health.

Find your PEEPS and you'll find a deepening connection to oneself, others and source energy.

Meditation (non resistance) may surface unpleasant thoughts and feelings,
as well as over whelming mental moods and poor self-management implications.
Our curated moments hope to guide you through the process of intention and recovery from oneself and others.
