Meditation is a buzzword nowadays, and everyone seems to want to do it. Transcendental Meditation. Mindfulness Meditation? Vipassana? Qigong?
But which one is best?
That depends on your needs and circumstances.
This new brain research video by Dr Fred Travis will help you to understand that meditation techniques differ in what they deliver and how they deliver. He explains the difference between focussed attention, open monitoring and automatic self-transcending.
This blog is about Transcendental Meditation and how to find it.
The other meditation techniques mentioned are also popular.
But I would venture that we teach TM to hundreds of folk who have done other techniques. And they all say the same thing: “Oh! This is so easy – and sooo deep!”
This is not to say TM is “the best” meditation. But a long term and informed review of the existing evidence suggests that Transcendental Meditation does indeed deliver the broadest range of benefits. And its easy to learn and enjoyable to practice.
I hope this helps!
