When most people are questioned about what will bring them happiness, they list good health, wealth or a successful career, fulfilling and successful relationships, and the ability to pursue work they find satisfying. While most individuals can explain that they want a happy life, a growing number of people express difficulty in attaining this goal.

Recognizing this need, Charlotte Meditation has developed a new Find Your Happiness Program based on mindfulness meditation that focuses on helping you rediscover your joy and learn to effectively cope with the stresses each of us face in our daily lives. You will learn valuable tools that will aid you in achieving calmness and the ability to focus more in every aspect of your life.

The Role Mindfulness Plays in Discovering and Embracing Your Personal Happiness

What exactly is mindfulness? Mindfulness is an approach to life where a person makes a conscious choice to be completely present, with an awareness of their actions and surroundings without allowing extemporaneous events or circumstances beyond their control to have an unduly negative impact on their well-being.

Human beings are naturally equipped to act mindfully but need to learn how to practice it. Practicing meditation is fundamentally important to achieving mindfulness. Meditation is a learned skill and as you develop your practice, you will find physical, mental, and spiritual benefits that will help you come to a better understanding of yourself through self-reflection. You will approach life with an open mind that allows you to see opportunities and embrace a wider world view.

It is important to note that mindfulness is not about changing who you are. The goal of mindfulness is to come to a greater personal understanding and become the best version of yourself that you can be.

Mindfulness Meditation

The many benefits of mindfulness meditation have been proven by multiple evidence-based studies. A 2010 scientific study published in Psychological Medicine found that numerous research studies have demonstrated a link between mindfulness meditation and benefits to physical and mental health that are demonstrated in the short-term and long-term well-being of those who practice it.

Studies using electroencephalographic (commonly known as EEG) tests have shown that alpha and theta brainwave activity substantially increases while a person is meditating. Theta activity is responsible for imagination and intuition and allows us to tap into deeper feelings of relaxation and contentment. Alpha brainwaves signal the brain is in its resting state. Increased alpha wave activity has been shown to improve alertness and induce calmness.

Charlotte Meditation’s Approach to Teaching Mindfulness Meditation

While we all have the ability to live mindfully, meditation is a learned skill that requires regular practice. Led by founder Master Guru Ranjit, Charlotte Meditation’s Find Your Happiness Program is designed to teach you the proper way to meditate. The course is built on the core principle that you learn meditation by doing it, so the focus is on the importance of regularly practicing meditation.

Meditation Master Teacher: Guru Ranjit

A native of India, Ranjit had the opportunity to receive instruction in meditation, yoga, and ayurvedic health practices from Guru Dhirendra Brahmachari, a renowned and much sought-after expert in mindfulness practices. Ranjit spent two years studying with Guru Brhmachari on a regular basis.

Ranjit chose to further his studies into mindfulness practices by visiting numerous monasteries and shrines in India and Nepal to receive further instruction from the monks. What Ranjit learned about mindfulness and successfully applied in his own life gave him the inner peace to maintain a work-life balance and deal with the stresses faced while he worked in the corporate world.

In 2004, his interest and belief in the power of meditation to improve lives inspired him to open Charlotte Meditation and return to focusing on meditation on a full-time basis.

The Find Your Happiness Program

Ranjit brings 25 years of expertise to assist his clients in achieving emotional freedom, renewed physical health, and a higher level of consciousness by practicing simple meditation and yoga.

Ranjit designed the new Find Your Happiness Program to help you discover peace as well as personal and professional prosperity. The program offers a personalized journey where you are given the tools to declutter your mind, discover what happiness means to you, and use meditative focus to achieve your goals.
