free online meditation techniques instruction
of the best meditation
techniques of all types,
from diverse spiritual traditions world-wide.
Non-denominational, multi cultural.
Meditation is an ancient, time-proven way to calm the mind, experience inner peace, and enhance awareness. It also develops greater concentration, allowing deeper, more creative thinking and problem solving.
There are many different ways to meditate, and different methods. We offer free meditation techniques that represent a broad spectrum of different "types" of meditation, including breathing, chanting, concentration, contemplation, sub-conscious integration, energy, transcendental, zen meditation, etc.. Some are unique ancient meditations, some techniques are more recent. The meditations are also from different cultures and spiritual paths, including Zen, Buddhism, yoga, etc..
Some traditions/religions insist that they have a certain meditation technique that is "it", the one and only, or the greatest. In our opinion, that isn't true. Some techniques work better for some people, and not for others. Everyone is different.
Our opinion is based on personal experience, both in traveling the world and studying many different spiritual paths and traditions, and from doing scientific research on the mental and physical effects of every imaginable meditation.
We offer instruction in what we've found to be the best of the best. Most or all of the meditation techniques should work well for you, and perhaps one will work particularly well. Everyone has their own "best meditation technique" that works best for themselves. You just need to find it. It's best to stick to a variety of techniques to start with, even ones that don't seem to work well for you. Sometimes what will eventually be the most effective meditation technique for you, will be one that doesn't seem to work that well, or is difficult for you, at first.
THE NECESSITY OF, AND REWARDS OF, PATIENCE
During beginning meditation practice, you will find that your mind will wanders and thoughts will "pop in" to your head. Those thoughts will try to distract you. Your mind "chattering" with thoughts is a common occurrence when learning mediation. At first, your mind is like an undisciplined child and the "monkey mind" (as we sometimes call it) will hamper your training IF you let it bother you. So what can you do about it?
Don't get frustrated! That is vital. As soon as you notice a lapse in attention or concentration, simply re-focus. Immediately redirect your mind back, and continue or begin again. Be patient with your self rather than falling into the trap of blaming or getting angry with yourself, or getting frustrated - which can lead to giving up.
Unlike drugs, devices, or possessions of any kind, once learned, the wonderful peace and mind control meditation techniques give you, can never be taken away. Also, the ability to meditate can never be lost, never break, and never let you down.
Whether it's free or not, how long it takes to dramatically notice that meditation is really working or "doing something", varies with every individual. It can be partially effective relatively soon but it takes time and practice to reap the full benefits and become a master of meditation techniques. Once learned, however, the rewards are far more than worth the effort of your quick and easy meditation techniques.
