With so many apps and gurus out there today, the number of types of meditations have exploded. There are ancient ones and brand new untested ones. So how do we know which ones are the best, which ones are a waste of time, and which ones may even have negative effects?
In this episode, I go into depth about the two most common types of meditation, mantra and breath meditation. Breath is where we simply observe our breath with our entire focus. Mantra is where we repeat a mantra to ourselves. The very popular Transcendental Meditation, or TM, uses mantra meditation, whereas breath awareness meditation tends to be used in the school of mindfulness. I explain the differences and benefits to both types of meditation, and whether or not mantra meditation does indeed count as meditation.
