Being a student can be a great experience. You're studying a subject that you're interested in and enjoying the opportunity to get involved in new activities and make new friends. For some of you, it might be the first time you've lived away from home and you're relishing your new-found independence.
Who says students don't have stress ?
But student life isn't fun all the time. It can also be stressful and difficult. Students face challenges such as intensive study schedules, social pressure from peers and the risks of drug and alcohol abuse. The life of a student isn't just an exciting time of opening to a universe of knowledge, it's a first-hand introduction to some of life's most intense pressures.
This is why you need the deep rest, relaxation, and rejuvenation of meditation. You learn better when you are happy and relaxed. And there's an even better reason to consider meditation : What better time to expand, deepen, and clear your mind when learning is your first priority? This is just when it really makes sense to begin to unfold your full creative potential. Studies have correlated the practice of meditation with higher creativity, increased intelligence, and improved memory. That's because meditation not only clears the mind, but opens a person to the deeper, silent, creative levels of thought.

Fast Track Meditation
Using traditional techniques, learning to meditate would take many months, or even years, of practice - with no guarantee of success.
With our Meditation Machines you can take the Fast Track to Meditation. Meditation Machines combine modern technology with ancient wisdom to enable you to meditate easily and automatically and start to receive the benefits immediately.
A Meditation Machine consists of a small, hand-held unit, stereo headphones and special glasses. It utilizes specifically tuned frequencies of light and gentle sound to lead you to deep relaxation and meditation.
Simply find a quiet place where you will remain undisturbed for a few minutes. Put on the comfortable headphones and visual stimulation glasses and just listen to the gently pulsating sound whilst watching the flickering lights through your closed eyelids.
The flickering lights create moving, coloured, dynamic patterns (visuals) that will amaze you the first time you experience them. You can move your eyes and change the effect or you can concentrate on the patterns and change what they seem to be doing.
Your brainwaves will automatically start to follow the audio and visual stimulation and you will start to relax mentally and physically as you naturally and automatically drift into a deeper level of mind.

Biofeedback is another technique to control stress and improve your emotional and physical well-being. It is scientifically based and validated by studies and clinical practice.
Biofeedback systems make you aware of your unconscious “involuntary” physical reactions to stress and teach you how to use your mind to take voluntary control over your body.
In the past, biofeedback systems have been expensive to buy - and boring to use ! But the Journey to Wild Divine is a unique computer game that links biofeedback hardware with your computer to create an incredible experience. Unlike a normal computer game where you accomplish errands by clicking on a mouse, in "The Journey ", you perform increasingly difficult tasks by practicing breathing and meditation techniques that affect your heart rate and excitement level
