Types of Meditation

Meditation strengthens the brain by improving focus, concentration and productivity. Other benefits are reduced stress, depression, anxiety, heart disease, and high blood pressure.

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.
  • Mantra relies on the oral repetition of a sound, sentence, or series of words with positive personal significance.
