So you're ready to explore meditation? There are many ways to go about it, but essentially meditation is about one thing: opening to the depths of this very moment. Eckhart Tolle, the bestselling author of The Power of Now, speaks about the time-tested art of meditation in this excerpt from EckhartTolleTV.com
Meditation for a Quiet Mind
Our minds are constantly at work, going over the same habitual thoughts again and again. The experience for most of us in any given moment is that we are stuck in our heads, disconnected from our bodies, and living one step removed from our immediate situation.
Meditation is a method for synchronizing body and mind in the present moment. When the body and mind are in sync, we are naturally relaxed, alert, open, and aware, and we experience ourselves and the world in a direct, unmediated way, without conceptual filters. It is this direct experience of the fullness, vitality, and splendor of life that is the gift of meditation.
Eckhart Tolle and his teaching partner Kim Eng have developed a complementary approach to meditation practice, which they share with us each month on Eckhart Tolle TV.com, an online video seminar series enjoyed by people all over the world. Eckhart takes an informal approach on how to meditate, cautioning against using the practice as a means to an end. Kim brings us a more structured approach, using movement practices similar to qi gong and tai chi along with formal instruction in breath, posture, working with attention, and so on. She has also created a set of guided meditation practices entitled Meditations for A New Earth.
