      "text": "Broadly speaking, the practice of meditation helps you explore different aspects of your mind and develop a state of mindfulness that can be present with anything that comes up — challenging emotions, moods or thoughts as well as positive states like joy, happiness and ease. The aim is to understand as much as we can about the nature of the human experience, of this body and mind. Over time, these understandings can offer us more skillful ways to respond to life with kindness, patience, compassion and equanimity instead of habitual reactivity and confusion. And when mindfulness meditation is practiced regularly, this can lead us towards increasing resilience, happiness and ease in all areas of our life."
