Types of Meditation

  • All forms of meditation can be classified into one or a combination of four categories:

    • Concentrative(The most commonly used form)

    • Receptive

    • Reflective

    • Generative

Concentrative meditation
Concentrative Meditation

  • Assists with focusing the mind.

  • This is done by focusing on the breath, image, objective or sound (mantra) during the meditation. 

  • This process allows the mind to achieve clarity and awareness. 

  • Transcendental meditation (TM), based in the Hindu tradition, is a form of concentrative meditation.

Receptive meditation
Receptive Meditation

  • Assists with becoming more fully present in the moment. 

  • This is done by being mindful and attentive to feelings, sensation, thoughts, images, smells and experiences without becoming involved in judgment, reactions or processes of the experience.

  • This helps to gain a calmer, clearer and more non-reactive state of mind and being.  Mindfulness meditation, based on Buddhism, is a form of receptive meditation.

Reflective meditation
Reflective Meditation

  • Assists with investigating an idea in a systematic way.

  • Uses disciplined thinking and analysis to reflect upon a compelling question, challenge, idea or project.

  • Reflects on a verse, a phrase or inspiring idea. 

  • Brings wisdom and insight into all aspects of our lives.

    • If we are anxious, frightened or upset our breath tends to be shallow, irregular and quick. 

    • If we are relaxed, settled or calm, our breath tends to be more slow, deep and regular.

    Importance of Breath

    • Focusing the mind on the continuous rhythm of inhalation and exhalation provides a natural object of meditation.

    • As you focus your awareness on the breath, your mind becomes absorbed in the rhythm of inhalation and exhalation.

    • As a result, your breathing will become slower and deeper, and the mind becomes more tranquil and aware.
