There are four primary types of meditation.

  • Zen frees the mind by sitting and focusing all attention on an object through many different seated positions and breathing techniques.
  • Mindfulness focuses on paying attention to one’s current state and truly focusing on the present moment.
  • Qigoing is usually practiced while standing and utilizes concentrated breathing, basic hand movements and physical exercises to calm the mind.
