4 Common types of meditation
1. MINDFULNESS MEDITATION
That means paying attention to what’s happening around you and within you.
There are many styles of mindful meditation.
” Mindfulness means paying attention to what’s happening right now in the present moment on purpose and with intention. “

2. MANTRA MEDITATION
3. ENERGIZING MEDITATION
While practicing Energizing Meditation, we use the breath.
We manipulate the breath and we do certain body movements that really energize the body. Sorts of like natural energizer, natural coffee stimulant.
By doing this type of meditation you won’t need all of that. It’s really good for a “Pick-Me-Up” in the middle of the day.
4. COMPASSION BASED MEDITATION
