Accessing info from the subconscious mind, memory, collective consciousness
Communication with the natural world
Increased intelligence, wisdom and sensitivity
Finding out what is important and meaningful to you

Meditation and a short story about one mans' experience.
Teaching in adult education I have met all kinds of people. This included a lovely man who told me that in learning to meditate he overcame his epilepsy. He said he hadn't set out to meditate with this in mind, but that in making it his daily practise to meditate he became quite adept and his recovery from it was a side effect. Since that time he has gone on to share with others how to meditate too. Of course there is no guarantee of the outcomes of any type of meditation in terms of curative properties, but it is proven fact that it most certainly helps with our mental health and well being.
