‘Meditation has been around for thousands of years and there are dozens of different styles, methods, practices and reasons for practicing it.’
Some of the different styles you may have heard of are vedic, transcendental (TM), vipassana, visual, mindful, heart rhythm meditation, qi gong plus many more.
Meditation can be done in so many ways – it can be done in silence, sitting, walking, alone , in a group, using mantras and the list goes on, in fact meditation can be done anywhere.
I also practice being ‘mindful’ as part of my meditation and also practice it as a regular activity I choose to do in my day to day life. The actual definition of being ‘mindful’ is a mental state achieved by focusing one’s awareness on the present moment, while calmly acknowledging and accepting one’s feelings, thoughts, and bodily sensations, used as a therapeutic technique.
