Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Nice introduction here. Please note that this video recommends practicing with your eyes open. If that fits you, go for it. There are some meditative practices where this is standard. I mostly practice with eyes closed but will sometimes shake it up and keep them open as it is more challenging for me. Also, they place hands down on their knees. There are many different hand positions or mudras. I always do hands up on my knees with fingers open and relaxed. This position says that I am open and ready to receive. This is something else you can experiment with as different positions feel different and your meditation experience will alter based on where your hands and fingers are placed.

 

Meditation


by Sarah McLean

Meditation is really easy to learn and really easy to do. But sometimes when people try it at home without any guidance, they get frustrated because they notice they have many thoughts and they have the misconception that their minds have to be still to meditate correctly...

 

Editor's Note: As a meditation teacher, I get the comment "I have a short attention span, meditation is just too hard for me" and, of course, I get this prior to the person actually learning to meditate...


Meditation


by Martijn Schirp

Over the past few hundred years the power of organized religion has steeply declined in the west. State & church and science & religion are separated and free inquiry is now more encouraged than ever. The loss of God as the absolute reference point has given room for humanity to take the ropes of responsibility and freedom into their own hands. However, while it has opened our minds, it has closed our hearts...

 

Editor's Note from Eden Kozlowski: Good article with more studies on meditation and Martijn describes his desire for more acceptance and the need for this contemplative work.

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: This video is simply awesome. And, so timely... as Time Magazine proclaims on its recent cover about the "Mindful Revolution."

 

Meditation


by Elena Nezhinsky

de·sire

noun

 1. a strong feeling of wanting to have something or wishing for something to happen...

 

Editor's Note from J. Stewart Dixon: This is a beautiful and straight forward article about the D word: DESIRE.  It's a common spiritual myth that with enlightenment/awakening comes the end of desire. Trust me, I have often desired the end of desire.  I bet you have too.  Elena explains the truth about this common misconception.

 

Meditation


by Sri Sri Shankar

Have you observed what is happening in your mind every moment? It vacillates between the past and the future. It is either in the past, occupied with what has happened, or in the future thinking about what you have to do...

 

Editor’s Note from Eden Kozlowski: Succinct article to understand how "culturing the mind" with meditation helps you find peace and balance.

 

Meditation 


by Vincent Horn

So much of what I’ve been learning about lately is around vulnerability. Vulnerability in a psychological sense, of seeing my own limitations and being willing to acknowledge them. And also in a more cognitive and spiritual sense. The cognitive vulnerability has to do with dropping common ways of knowing and doing things, and stepping into new and uncomfortable territory, kind of like an infant when it takes a few shaky steps...

 

Editor's Note: I'm a big fan of Vincent Horn's podcast and writings. He has a remarkable wisdom for his age and loves tackling important questions.

 

Meditation


by Chuck Hillig

The truth of who you really are is often hiding in plain sight.

The cosmic clues are really everywhere: in music, books, paintings, movies, poems, songs, plays, sculpture, photographs, etc...


Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: Wisdom, humor and heart from my friend Chuck Hillig.  Chuck lives near me in central Virginia.  When we get together we don't talk about the meaning of life, enlightenment, or any of that deep sh**. We drink beer and go fishing on his boat. :)  Row, row, row yer boat....

 

Meditation


 

by Janis Masyk-Jackson

Meditation is an altered state of consciousness which removes distraction and allows a person clarity and awareness. Beginning with ancient man, the practice of meditation spread throughout the world and evolved into many different forms...

Regarded as one of most effective ways of meditation, Japa Meditation helps sooth the mind and clears away the numerous impinging problems and worries that cloud it from time to time. Prevalent from ancient times, Japa Meditation has been in vogue and practised by all religions such as Hindus, Christians, Muslims, and others to enable them to experience peace, calmness, and tranquillity in their minds and life...

 

 

Meditation


by Catherine Ingram

We are hungry animals. Hungry for food, drink, emotional and physical stimulation, things, experiences, sex, lovers, kids, money, power–there is literally no end to our collective longings...

 

Editor's note from J. Stewart Dixon: Catherine Ingram teaches a beautiful, non-traditional, non-denominational dharma which is influenced by zen, nonduality, self-inquiry and advaita.  I have spoken with her on numerous occasions and found her inviting, warm, sincere and courageous.  Here is a small piece of her work- on desire- an often confusing element of our spiritual lives.
