Noting C is part of the FitMind Meditation Program. It is necessary to change how we understand and relate to thoughts through meditation.
Meditation is an umbrella term, like “exercise.” Just as swimming, running and weightlifting all train your body in different ways, meditation encompasses hundreds of procedures, each training your mind in a slightly or completely different way.
The most popular traditional methods of meditation are Vipassana (a.k.a., Insight or Mindfulness), Zazen, Vedic (or Yogic), Transcendental Meditation (TM) and Dzogchen. Without getting into too much detail on each of these, suffice to say they have a lot in common.
The myriad benefits of meditation come largely from these four mental shifts. If they sound simple enough, I can assure you that the untrained mind is completely out of your control, and you may not realize this until you begin to meditate. If you’ve meditated before, you know just how challenging all four components can be.
