Short Description of Each Meditation:

Samatha Meditation

Samatha, also known as calming meditation, brings a laser-like focus to our monkey mind. By removing the clutter, it makes the mind one-pointed, thus enabling us to see things clearly.

According to the Buddha, Samatha and Vipassana are the two messengers, who deliver the message of Nibbana (Nirvana) rather swiftly. In many Buddhist traditions, Samatha is done as a precursor to Vipassna (insight) meditation.

Vipassana Meditation

Vipassana is often translated as “insight” or “clear-seeing”. Vipassana is insight into the true nature of reality, namely existence: impermanence, suffering or un-satisfactoriness, and the realization of the true self.

Vipassana meditation is an ancient practice taught by Buddha, in which mindfulness of breathing and of thoughts, feelings and actions is being used to gain insight in the true nature of reality. Vipassana, “before the eyes,” which refers to direct experiential perception. Thus, the type of seeing denoted by “Vipassana” is that of direct perception, as opposed to knowledge derived from reasoning or argument.

Witnessing Impermanence Meditation

This meditation has the potential to have you know your Inner Witness and to gain real self-control of your senses, body, and emotions. It is intended to open your inner eye leading to the experience of your true self or as some call it your “eternal unconditioned awareness”.

No Dimensions Meditation

This active centering meditation is based on Sufi techniques, and further developed and expanded by Osho. Using the breath and a series of coordinated body movements followed by whirling, your energy becomes centered in the hara, the “life energy” center below the navel. From there you can watch the mind and experience awareness and wholeness – the body moving in all directions, the centre unmoving.

Mindful Eating Meditation

During lunch we now have the opportunity to apply what we have learned from the morning meditations. Mindful eating is an ancient mindfulness practice with profound modern implications and applications for resolving troubled love-hate relationship with food. Attention is placed on the whole experience of this nourishing but all too often under-valued event. Mindful eating helps us learn to hear what our body is telling us about hunger and satisfaction. It helps us become aware of who in the body/heart/mind complex is hungry, and how and what is best to nourish it.

Mindfulness Walking Meditation

In walking meditation we use the experience of walking as our focus. We become mindful of our experience while walking, and try to keep our awareness involved with the experience of walking. You will most likely never have had such an aware intimate experience with each of your steps before.

Inner Lotus Meditation

This is a simple yet powerful relaxation visualization meditation technique to reach mental tranquility and clarity. The method recognizes that the connection between the internal system (body and mind) and the external system (universe) leads to well being and healing, whereas pain (whether physical or emotional) creates internal and external disconnection. This meditation technique is has its roots in Qigong and Traditional Chinese Medicine and will help you reconnect to your innate healing wisdom within and to the abundant universal energy all around you.

Kundalini Meditation

Being fully immersed in the shaking and dancing of the first two stages helps to “melt” the rock-like being, wherever the energy flow has been repressed and blocked. Then that energy can flow, dance and be transformed into bliss and joy. The last two stages enable all this energy to flow vertically, to move upwards into silence. It is a highly effective way of unwinding and letting go at the end of the day.

Tonglen Meditation

This is a great meditation to end the day. With all the Kundalini or Chi energy we build up through the day, we can now offer some energy towards true humanitarian healing. This loving kindness meditation helps to reawaken our inherent capacity to give and receive love through the practice of compassion.

By reflecting on the suffering that all beings everywhere, our compassion becomes deeper and more limitless. We wish to free all beings from their suffering and even its causes; we desire, more than anything, to bring them happiness and peace. The more we meditate on suffering, the deeper our compassion becomes, until we realize that to be of the greatest help to beings, we ourselves must attain enlightenment for the benefit of all others.
