A brief outline of what meditation is and the better known forms.
In considering what meditation is it is perhaps worth considering what meditation is not.
Meditation is not about control, achieving states of bliss or euphoria. It is not about escaping from the mind or body.
Meditation is about being still, even in walking meditation!
In sitting meditation many methods are available to get started and once some clarity in sitting is found these methods or tricks can be let go of or put aside, and the practice of meditation can grow to become a wonderful opportunity to find clarity of being, clarity of mind and body.
The name of this web site was inspired by meditation - Mettß Meditation. Mettß is a Pali word which translates into English as Loving-Kindness or unconditional positive regard. Metta Meditation is a form of meditation which encourages connecting with pure loving kindness in a non attached way.
Further information on the many forms of meditation will be added shortly, including Transcendental Meditation, Zen, Vipassana (insight meditation) and others will be added over the coming weeks and months.
