I divide the map into five overall sections, each with a series of stages. While the stages themselves are standard and can be found in the Visuddhimagga and Burmese meditation master Mahasi Sayadaw’s The Progress of Insight, the sections are my creation. I created the sections because they help to organize the path in a way that, I believe, makes the overall experience more understandable...

 

Editor's Note: In Part 1 of this series, Hawaii-based meditation teacher Ron Crouch outlined the theory behind one of the principal maps of enlightenment found in Theravada Buddhism—the four-stage journey to arahatship. In this second installment, Ron begins providing some detailed descriptions of the states and stages commonly experienced by yogis as they travel this path.

Meditation


by Jon Rhodes

Many people have tried hypnotherapy or meditation to help them relax and improve their mind. These are great tools for relaxation and self improvement...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: There are many things you can do to support and enhance your meditation practice. This is one to consider. And, I agree with what is described here as I also engage in audio meditations that work with different frequencies and have utilized a BAUD machine (a device that creates sonic waves that blend with brain frequencies measured by an electroencephalogram) for my daughter with special needs. Cool stuff.

Meditation is the experience of attentional focus; of stilling the mind and existing in the infinite space that exists beyond your thoughts...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Meditation is the "mainstay of my inner work." How about you?

 

Meditation


 

Editor's Note: Jon Kabat-Zinn has such a great way of putting meditation practice into perspective. We meditate in order to cultivate intimacy with what it means to human. It, of course, starts with sitting down twice a day, eyes closed. It continues when we open our eyes to a new awareness. Live your life - moment by moment.

Meditation


by Ron Crouch

When I first began meditating and read about things like the “path,” “way” and “journey,” I assumed that these terms were just metaphors that described a kind of personal growth that takes place on one’s spiritual quest. I had a vague notion that if I meditated I would gradually become a better person, and that it was this personal transformation that was referred to by the language of “paths” and “journeys...”

 

Editor's Note: Perspectives on enlightenment differ dramatically from tradition to tradition. In some, enlightenment is rarely, if ever, discussed at all. In others, it is seen as something only attainable by the ancients. What's so interesting about Hawaii-based meditation teacher Ron Crouch is that he spells out states and stages explicitly. Is this controversial? Yes. Is it a perspective worth considering? Count me in the camp that says "absolutely!"

Meditation


by Swami Nityamuktananda Saraswati

There is a misconception that silence is cultivating an “inactive brain” - a dull mind! It is not, that, on the contrary it’s a mind, that is highly aware but the awareness is open to receive knowing that is not bound by concepts and words - but free to receive higher vibrations of knowing...

Can Doing Nothing Help Depression and Anxiety?

by Dr. Neala Peake

Here is a shocking statement. One solution to depression and anxiety might be doing absolutely nothing. Before I offend someone I had better explain…  I don’t mean “nothing” in the way most of us define it.  I am talking about a very powerful practice in which a person sits quietly in a state of stillness and peace.  I am talking about meditation - the rather challenging process of minimizing activity both internally and externally - i.e. the practice of doing nothing. It has been suggested that meditation can help both depression and anxiety and my professional experiences support this claim...
