by Michael Erlewine

Obviously I am not enlightened and know next to nothing of that state. Since I am Buddhist, if I did know ‘nothing’, I would be better off, but with knowing next to nothing, I am close, but no cigar. LOL.

However, I have learned something about what the steps toward enlightenment are all about, and I find them fascinating. Perhaps some of you will also...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Are you on a path to try to truly recognize the mind and see it for all that it is... and isn't? Here Michael describes some of what he's learned about enlightenment from the Buddhist tradition. As he describes it... "fascinating."

 

 

Meditation


by Dr. Donna Rockwell, PsyD, LP

"My husband went off to do a retreat and came home and said, “Syl, this is great. You should try it.” I did a two-week retreat and I did not have amazing meditation states. Mainly, I had a headache and my body hurt a lot. But my headache finally went away and I calmed down a little bit..."

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: This is part 3 of a 4 part interview that Donna Rockwell did with multiple well-known meditation teachers. In this interview she talks with Sylvia Boorstein, who shares the ways in which meditation has helped her celebrate life and drop fear. See Part 1 and Part 2.

 

Meditation


by Dr. Donna Rockwell, PsyD, LP

Donna Rockwell: When did you start meditating?

Joseph Goldstein: I was in the Peace Corps in Thailand, and I started going to a temple in Bangkok where Western Buddhist monks were leading discussion groups...

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: Joseph Goldstein, well-known teacher of Insight Meditation, talks with Donna Rockwell about his introduction to meditation and how it has changed his life. It is fascinating to look at his answers to some of the same questions that Rockwell put to Charlotte Joko Beck in Part I of this interview. (This is the second installment of this interview, which Donna Rockwell did with 4 well-known meditation teachers.)

 

Meditation


by Dr. Donna Rockwell, PsyD, LP

I meet all sorts of people who’ve had all sorts of experiences and they’re still confused and not doing very well in their life. Experiences are not enough. My students learn that if they have so-called experiences, I really don’t care much about hearing about them...

 

Editor's Note from David Pratt: In this short interview, Charlotte Joko Beck emphasizes the simplicity and one-pointedness of meditation. She tells us that meditation isn't about being special, but simply being aware of what's going on - aware of what is. (This is the first installment of an interview Donna Rockwell did with 4 well-known meditation teachers. In each one, she asks some of the same questions.)

Meditation


by Jeanie Marshall

For over 30 years, I have been meditating. For almost as many years, in workshops, consultations, friendly conversations, and writing, I have been encouraging, teaching, or leading people to meditate and create quiet times. During this time, the world has changed considerably, and so have I...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: The author writes, "Meditators give off signals or vibrations that are calmer and more aligned with self..." Do you believe this to be true?

 

Meditation


by Geshe Rabten

Concentration is important in both Dharma practice and ordinary life. The Tibetan word for the practice of concentration is shi-nä (zhi-gNas). Shi means peace and nä means to dwell; shi-nä, then, is dwelling in peace or being without busyness.

 

Editor’s Note: Geshe Rabten was a great Buddhist scholar, debater and meditation master. He escaped to India in 1959 where he was the teacher of Lama Yeshe and Lama Zopa Rinpoche. In the mid-1960s he was appointed as a spiritual assistant to His Holiness the Dalai Lama. And, to make this easy for those who aren’t as familiar with Buddhism...Dharma is the teachings of Buddha. “Dharma” means “protection.”

 

Meditation

 



by Arun Goel

Meditation can be described as a continued, unbroken awareness of the mind in its raw state. It involves the overcoming of distractions and dissipated energies into a blissful awareness...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Clear article on meditation and why you want to develop a meditation lifestyle. My favorite part, "Meditation helps us overcome our manifold desires and distractions. It does so NOT by curbing desires – which will always be there – but by rendering them inconsequential in front of an unbroken and larger desire of existence."

 

Meditation


by Kay Goldstein

A friend recently sent me the following email: "I had a set back yesterday and was struggling with too many thoughts and feeling frustrated. I did some deep breathing, which helped. I just wanted to ask you: what do you do when this happens to you?  What is a good way to push these feelings aside in a helpful manner? Sometimes I just get overwhelmed..."
 

 

 

Meditation


by Theodore K. Phelps

Meditation has a wide range of scientifically measurable effects. In 1988 Michael Murphy and Steven Donovan, of the Esalen Institute, published The Physical and Psychological Effects of Meditation and reported 1,253 scientific and literary studies on meditation going back to 1931. When they published a second edition in 1996, they had added about 400 more studies. During those eight years, they reported, growth in research had been "nothing short of spectacular," with investigations moving beyond the gross physiology to subtle changes in biochemistry and voluntary control of internal states...
