Meditation Training

Meditation is a set of techniques that are intended to facilitate a heightened state of awareness and focused attention, it is a consciousness-changing technique shown to have benefits on psychological well-being. Most religions, including Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity, Judaism, and Islam, have a tradition of using meditative practices and others practice it independently of any religious or spiritual beliefs or practices.

Kevin has been practicing meditation for decades and has undertaken advanced studies to deepen his practice. He can help you in starting or refining your meditation practice and is familiar with a number of modalities as detailed below.

Types of Meditation

Meditation has many different forms, but there are two main types: concentrative meditation and mindfulness meditation.

Concentrative Meditation
Concentrative meditation involves focusing on a specific thing while tuning out everything else around you. The goal is to experience whatever you are focusing on, whether it’s your breath, a specific word, or a mantra, to reach a higher state of being.

Mindfulness Meditation
Mindfulness meditation includes, among others, both mindfulness-based cognitive therapy (MBCT) and mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR). Mindfulness can target different issues, such as depression or stress and anxiety control, meaning its focus may differ from practice to practice. Basically mindfulness involves the state of being aware of and involved in the present moment and making yourself open, aware, and accepting.

Specific Meditation Types

• Breathing meditation: This involves focusing on different breathing techniques.
• Body-scan meditation: This practice involves scanning the body and noticing physical sensations, a form of Yoga Nidra.
• Loving-kindness meditation: This technique involves focusing your attention on loved ones, yourself, and others as you think kind and caring thoughts.
• Mantra meditation: This practice involves chanting a word or phrase, which can be done aloud or in your mind.
• Movement meditation: This type of meditation involves focusing on movements of the body, either by moving specific parts of the body or observing the world around you during a walk.
