Meditation has devoutly Buddhist origins in the eyes of most scholars and Western culture. While it’s not particularly wrong or mistaken, meditation has evolved from its traditional eastern roots and taken the shape of various psychiatric interventions, cognitive therapy and stress-coping mechanisms all of which are viewed from a secular lens rather than being seen as something that religious or spiritual people do. Not that spiritual or religious people cannot or shouldn’t do it. How exactly, though, do you implement this illusive concept of Selbstreflexion into your life? Here are some top tips that will help get you started.
