Descriptions of Various Forms of Meditation:
There are many forms of meditation available. The ones I personally use and have found to be the most effective are: guided meditation, mindfulness meditation, walking meditation and Vedic meditation (where Transcendental meditation originated.) Each of these has a different structure yet the goal of all of them is to go within yourself and connect with a higher level of consciousness and inner peace. I believe that having a variety of "go to" forms of meditation allows you to choose which one is best for you in your current situation.
Guided Meditation is when the person leading the meditation will guide another through the practice using visualization and/or breath awareness in order to reach a state of peace and higher states of consciousness. The use of imagery to visualize a scene, for example, being in nature or bringing a calming light into your body is incredibly effective for relaxing the body and mind. This guided visualization is quite effective because it taps into the subconscious mind and so the body responds as though the imagined visuals are real. Guided Meditation can also incorporate simple guidance like placing one's awareness of their breathing. By guiding the meditator to for example, take a bigger inhale and slowly exhale, the meditator allows the breath awareness to calm the central nervous system which in turn calms the mind.
Mindfulness Meditation is the practice of keeping one's awareness in the present moment and "watching" or observing their thoughts without judgement. As though each thought is like a leaf on a stream drifting by your consciousness. You simply are aware of your thoughts, emotions, or physical sense of being without any agenda or attachment to what you witness. You are watching yourself and in this process your awareness can move into a deeper state of inner peace because you are not attached to the thoughts, emotions or feelings. This can be a very liberating process to witness mental chatter from the state of a Watcher and then let the thoughts go.
Walking Meditation is putting mindfulness into a physical practice by observing your own body and environment as you move through space. This is a wonderful practice in being present because you are constantly focusing on what is. "What is your body feeling at this moment, what is the temperature of the air, what are your eyes seeing in this moment, what are you observing through your senses, etc". This is a good "two-ffer" of physical exercise and mindfulness.
Vedic Meditation (which would become Transcendental Meditation) is when the meditator silently repeats in their mantra in their mind for 20 minutes. Through this process one can transcend into a higher state of consciousness and peace. This meditation practice is done for 20 minutes a day twice a day, usually first thing in the morning and in the afternoon. I do not teach Vedic meditation but I do practice it personally.
