Meditation – East & West
Meditation East & West
Eastern & Western styles of Meditation are different. This appointment aims to assess your ability with each, and then to practice what you are best at. The ultimate purpose of meditation is to discover meaning in our mind and to balance the mind’s content in the most efficient way. We then move on to Contemplation(a stage beyond meditation), which is objectless and silent.
Eastern Mind Meditation
This style of Meditation is very well suited to beginners. It aims at bringing stable awareness to the physical body as the centre of the psyche. It’s for introspective and earthy people, and an excellent place to begin for anyone starting out with Meditation.
Western Mind Meditation
This style of Meditation is for the very busy mind. It aims at integration prior to stillness. It’s for strong personalities and people who are always on the go.
Physical Body Focus Meditation
Physical Body Focus
This style of Meditation is for people who are often too much in the mind and need to withdraw into the physical body to stabilise first. It’s the best way to begin for everyone, and is the most efficient method for beginners. It’s primarily for beginner meditators and people just starting out with meditation. A grounded start is your foundation. This style is suited to anyone who prefers to use their physical body as the primary focus for Meditation. Those interested in Mindfulness Meditation start here.
Emotional Balance Meditation
This style of Meditation is for people who are extra sensitive and open to emotional imbalance. It aims at psychological calmness and equilibration and soothing of various emotional states like anger, frustration, sadness, trauma, anxiety. It’s for sensitive personalities and people who are subject to being upset emotionally.
Pure Mind Meditation
This style of Meditation is for those who are already well-versed in their mind’s peculiarities. It aims at purifying the mental content and the inner motivation. It’s for subtle people who understand the gentle and various nuances of mental activity. This method is advanced and not for the beginner meditator.
This style of Meditation is for those who are ready to step beyond the mind and into the very essence of Contemplative awareness. It aims at what is called Reflexive Self-consciousness, a state of transcendent awareness which is the culmination of all meditation procedures; pure bliss. It’s for those who have the energy & mental integration to apply the simple rule which is at its basis. It is advanced and not suitable for a beginner meditator.
Study with Meditation
Study with Meditation
Some people like to have reading material or a personalised Study program in addition to their Meditation discipline. This is your choice. It will help to advance your Meditation discipline further and faster.
Although Mindfulness, as popularly taught today, is not a Meditation style in itself, it is a useful discipline in ‘concentration’, and we offer it for those who would like to experience its benefits. Go to the Mindfulness page for more detail.
