Quiet Mind’s name came from several of Patanjali’s yoga sutras which are translated as:
"Yoga is the stilling of the thought waves of the mind." and
"Then consciousness takes on its true nature."
So when we quiet the mind, our true nature is revealed.
Patanjali studied and practiced yoga in great depth and wrote these sutras, or statements, on yoga anywhere from 600 B.C. to 300 C.E.
Yogis thousands of years ago studied the art of trying to quiet the mind. They did this first through seated meditation and later through movement meditation as well.
Through quieting the mind they experienced complete oneness.
