MEDITATION is a PART OF the meaningful LIFE.
Mindfulness meditation
Breath connects us with the present.
Being in the present moment gives us a sense of balance, happiness, self-confidence and peace of mind.
This can be achieved only through meditation.

Aware. Train. Control.
Awareness is the ability to be in full contact with yourself and the world around you. Training the mind in awareness allows you go through life, easily managing your attention, thoughts and emotions.

Stability and calmness of the mind brings clarity, harmony,
precision and efficiency to all aspects of life.
and Work life
Mindfulness eliminates automatism in actions, gives the ability to quickly switch between multiple tasks, thus diminishing any form of stress and
as a result minimizing the risk of rapid burnout.

Emotional stability, involvement in the process
of work and relational attunement with colleagues creates a positive collaborative atmosphere with high personal efficacy.
and Social life
Openness and self-confidence, a high level
of consciousness and understanding of one's own feelings and emotions helps to identify oneself
in society.

Maintenance of the dignity and tolerance promotes harmonious alignment of one's personal boundaries, defining inner potential and highlighting opportunities, provided by the surrounding world, thus facilitating the successful adaptation
in society.
and Education
Concentration of attention improves the quality
of our perception of information, learning
and memory. Awareness enhances our general motivation and helps us indentify the main goals.

Being aware is very important skill
in the overwhelming flow of information
brought on by internet, social media etc.
and Wellness
Being relaxed means experiencing less stress
at any moment of unpredictable life.

Through meditation one is able to boost
and replenish energy and be aware of own body, follow required diet and change the lifestyle.
and Sports
Through mindfulness we achieve control over
our bodies. It strengthens neural connections between the brain and muscles.

It helps us focus on achievements, maintaining
the precision of goals, while at the same time monitoring emotions, which is important not only for those who are involved in professional sports, but for every health oriented person.
Meditation and Self-development
Perception, which is not bounded by judgments gives space for the manifestation of the best human qualities: kindness, tolerance, attentiveness, curiosity and intuition, thus giving opportunity
for the development of discipline and emotional intelligence.

Meditative self-observation helps to find one's own way of realization and express oneself without difficulties.

the world. Its positive effects on people have been demonstrated statistically through various researches.

Ripa Meditation Centers
The space of silence and the method
of expanding one's awareness.
Network of Ripa meditation halls and centers.
People need a place and an opportunity to stop in the rushed life to realize how they can learn to control their minds and, thereby, influence on the circumstances of one's own and other people lives.

The concept is to create a place of silence for the inhabitants of the big cities, in the midst of active social life, to make the centers for meditation a part of the urban environment, as well as retreat centers for a long stay in the natural environment, far away from the city bustle, which will be even more efficient for rebooting and replenishing ourselves.

RMC projects in Russia:
Irkutsk - meditation pavilion in a city park near the city center on the river bank. Moscow City - a meditation hall in the business center in the most active part of the city.
