Meditation – Types & Techniques

Meditation. We all know what this is, right? Ha, think again. There may be some surprises for you. Meditation, a very generic term for sure, encompasses a host of different activities. When most of us first think of it, we probably picture a guru sitting in a cave or on top of a mountain somewhere on his sheepskin blanket in full lotus position, either chanting, repeating his manta over and over, singing OM, or quietly contemplating his navel. And all the while, trying to empty his mind of anything, only existing in the nothingness of the moment while searching for union with the oneness of the cosmic forces of the universe.

Meditation – Is it for you?

Meditation. Yes, a very generic concept, but one practiced for a very long time by quite a number of people. Originally an ancient practice related to religious or spiritual activities, today it has grown into different health-related programs that integrate mind-body-soul. A way to tune us up, so to speak, and manage the modern stressful world. It is also used to expand our consciousness to perceive and understand reality, and to explore the inner landscape in pursuit of our true nature in relation to these higher consciousness states.
