Many of us seek better understanding and fuller experiences in our lives; to have more satisfaction, enjoyment, and inner peace. You have heard that meditation can be helpful for our physical, mental, and emotional health; but what is its connection to our spiritual health? What is the mystical aspect of meditation and how does it relate to those that have had a “Near-Death Experience”(NDE)?
