Meditation Teacher Training

Meditation Techniques Taught by Ancient Masters
Types of Meditation– Ancient Yogis Categorized all types of meditation techniques in two broad categories namely:

1. Focus on Single Object (Ekagra or Concentration):
This technique requires focusing the attention on a single object during the whole meditation session. This object can be your breath, a word or a mantra, visualization, part of the body, external object, etc. Slowly with practice the subject get better at his ability to keep the flow of attention in the chosen object, and distractions become less common and short-lived.

2. Awareness of the Present (Sakshi or Being a witness):
This technique doesn’t require putting attention on any object rather it is just being a witness of (aware of ) everything around you. Here distracting thought are not avoided rather going with them too far is to be avoided. Slowly these distractions become less frequent and thoughtlessness is achieved. Some of the techniques are discussed here for students. Many others are explored in course by different teachers.meditation-teacher-training-in-rishikesh-india

1. Breath Meditation:
This is the most practiced and ancient technique of the world. Here each breath is a cycle of meditation . You need to be see how many cycles you can perform with full attention. There are various methods of meditating on the breath. At Shri Yog Peeth  we teach few of those techniques. One of my favourite is step breathing. For this inhale in three small steps with a pause of one second at each step and then exhale in three steps in the same way. We also call it 10 second meditation technique.

2. Third Eye Meditation :
This technique is also called as Shambhavi Mudra. Focusing the attention on the “spot between the eyebrows” (called by some “the third eye” or “ajna chakra”). Initially attention is focussed there by various helpful tools like Sandal Powder, turmeric etc. The attention is constantly redirected to this point, as a means to silence the mind. This spot has a nature of holding the attention. Meditation Teacher Training In Rishikesh India

3. Chakra Meditation-
: This is the technique from various tantra or kundalini literature. The practitioner focuses on one of the seven chakras  of the body (“centres of energy”), with some visualization or Om or other mantra or breath. In a few days he starts experiencing some sensations at chakras.

4. Sakshi (Mindfulness) Meditation:
This technique is quite simple but effective. You need to sit at a quite place and be aware of the place but nothing particular. Don’t allow the mind to do the mental commentary but don’t even stop it. Slowly silence starts coming.

5. Meditation on Sound (Nada Yoga:
It starts with being aware of external sounds, such as calming ambient music (like Native American flute music), birds chirping, children playing, river etc. It can be done by putting attention or simply being aware of this. Slowly the practitioner evolves and starts listening internal sound of his body, chakras and finally the sweet sound of OM.

6. OSHO Meditation:
Simply called as dynamic meditations, OSHO’s techniques are great for beginners and provide the possibility to do meditation in whatever way you like. Walking, talking, laughing and even dancing are the techniques here.
Various other techniques are also taught in the course to make a student a good practitioner and accomplished teacher
