Dhyana is a type of meditation in Buddhism, Hinduism and Jainism that leads to understanding through thought. It is the state in which there is stability and awareness without attachment. Through this type of practical, focused thinking and mindfulness, awakening and liberation can be achieved.
I’m not a religious scholar. In fact, I came to the concept of dhyana and Zen through a round about way – by doing what worked for me through systematic trial and error. I am also not a scientist, but I do put a heavy emphasis on the scientific method and my default state is one of skepticism.
You will find only methods and ideas on this site that I, or people I personally know, have found to be useful and that are backed up by solid science- or a great deal of practical application. We can all grow and change, and that understanding is fundamental to the healing process, but you are ultimately responsible for your own state of being – you must find and walk your own path, and it will be different from anyone else.
This site is my gift to the community that helped me understand, heal and grow from my experience as the wife of a man with a personality disorder. A small return to those who truly helped me to leave an abusive relationship and ensure that I would never endure such a state again.
You can heal from emotional abuse. You can become whole, and love and trust deeply again. Getting there is a journey that you take moment by moment. I hope you find some comfort and insight in these words – and that you pass on the wisdom that you have gained to help others on their path.
