Learning Meditation Home Page Osho Mahamudra Meditation Instructions This hour-long track is specifically designed to support the OSHO Nataraj meditation. The music supports the energy and activity described in each stage of the meditation, and also signals the timing of each stage. A silent stage is part of most Osho Active Meditations, and when the meditation ends with silence it will be concluded with a bell or gong. This is a 65 minute dancing meditation in three stages, with specifically created music. Disappearing in the dance then relaxing into silence and stillness is the route inside for this method.

Mindfulness for Beginners: Dispelling 7 Myths of Meditation. “If you ask why we meditate, I would say it’s so we can become more flexible and tolerant to the present moment.”~ Pema Chodron Are you intrigued by meditation and mindfulness practices but don’t know how to get started?

Mindful sittingI recommend beginning with at least five minutes of formal seated meditation each day. The beauty of mindfulness is that it can be with us in every moment.

Meditation calms the mind and helps you tap into a state of awareness that brings you inner peace. Where can I meditate? Initially, you may prefer to find a quiet space to sit or lie down for about twenty to thirty minutes. How to meditate Ideal times to meditate are on awaking and prior to sleeping. Sit with a straight back or lie down whichever feels more comfortable. Close your eyes and slowly start to let go of everything. The only energy you need is an awareness that stops you falling asleep or day-dreaming! Try to calm your mind and observe silence. If thoughts arise, simply observe them and note – “there is a thought”, then let it go. You will soon see how thoughts cannot harm you unless you let them. Often more thoughts appear than normal in the early stages of practicing meditation – observe them and try to let them go. Book Excerpt: Suggested Reading:

untitled Teach Meditation In yoga, you would never teach anything you haven't done or experienced yourself with great deliberation, and the teachers should always be more evolved and enlightened than their students. They see deep reflection and evolution of the soul as a necessary part of learning to meditate, and it doesn't only involve a session of relaxation lying on the floor. They study the history of meditation, learn the philosophies of the dharma, and participate in daily walking meditations, open eye meditations, sitting meditations and laying down meditations. They also run intense yoga classes, eat strict, healthy diets, and often maintain honorable silence for days at a time. This is all designed to produce successful and experienced yoga masters who can instruct and teach meditation to others. Not only those associated with teaching the classes directly, but also others in the field of education can use meditation as a tool to help students. By Jim Bow Popular related searches:

untitled Buddhadasa Bhikkhu - Is Your Hair On Fire? | Theravada Dhamma :: Blog Imagine a person who feels completely healthy, completely free of all illness, sickness and physical disability. Wouldn’t it be ridiculous for that person to get medicine? What would be the point of that? What would be the rationale in getting medicine when you feel completely healthy? Those people who don’t see any problems, who are not aware of any dukkha, unsatisfactoriness, in their lives, what would be the point in their attempting to study the dhamma and to practise meditation? If you are new to this thing called ‘dhamma’, and new to meditation, then you are not expected to immediately agree that you have all sorts of problems and are suffering from many burdens in life. An absolutely essential condition for the proper study of dhamma is the desire to be free of dukkha, to be free of suffering. It is quite amusing and quite sad that most people seem to wander through life in a little cloud, as if nothing were wrong. Do you want to be healthy, or not? You have come to Suan Mokh.
