Meditation Introduction

How to meditate: Bring your attention back to your breath. Repeat as necessary.

Discussed exercise from Eckhart Tolle to show the energy/aliveness underneath experience. Showed that energy as the oneness of being.

Mentioned that five minutes of meditation a day is all we need to get started down a very important road of growth.

Our mind is capable of opening our focus to many things at the same time.

Discussed real life applications for meditation and presence. Use it to work with anger, sadness, physical pain, etc.

Meditation has two qualities. One is where you sit in the stillness of presence. This is where true joy comes from. This is the experience of now. No judgement, etc. The other state is when the mind is busy. This may not be as pleasurable, but this is where we learn. These are the workout reps for the mind. The is where we grow. Notice you are lost in thought and bring your attention back to the breath.

Mentioned Pema Chodron’s quote about the fact that if we knew where our pain came from, we would meditate like our hair was on fire.

  • Very nice information. Thanks for this.

  • Hi Rob, I’m enjoying your web site, videos and audio’s. Your very easy to listen to, your voice is relaxing and comes across as positive and knowledgeable.

    I am working on releasing the hold that procrastination has on me. Part of that procrastination work is to take more action. I’m also wanting to get back to meditating on a regular basis as well as getting myself to the gym more often.

    I’m developing a small group of people right now in the form of a self help support group. While doing research for this group I came across your web site. I’m finding it very helpful and informative. I’ve worked with some life coaches in the past in my local area. They were helpful but because we didn’t address my procrastination I didn’t take much action on their suggestions. I know that’s not the fault of the life coach, “You can lead a horse to water but you can’t make it drink”.

    Though finances limit me to use your coaching services, I’m happy to be able to get some help from your web site.

    You seem to be a very sincere person who truly wants to help others to be successful.

    People have told me that I have inspired them to achieve things they didn’t think they could, kind of like a muse. And I do seem to have a good sense about people. And my sense about you is that you will be very successful in your Life Coaching practice and will grow this beyond what you are even envisioning now. I’m not sure where you are at the moment, but I see you in large lecture halls, book signings and beyond. Keep up the good work. It will be interesting to see how far you will go.

  • This site is a walk-through for all the information you wanted about this and didn’t know who to ask. Look here, and you’ll definitely find it.

  • Meditation is not hard to do. It may be hard to start, just like anything else. But if you give it a chance and try it, you probably will have a meditation experience. That is to say, you will feel like you actually meditated.

    I think that it’s kind of hard to imagine what meditation will be like until you actually do it. And the key to doing it the first time is to get some direction or instruction from someone who knows how.

    A meditation teacher in person is best. You can sit with the teacher and they meditate with you. This is helpful to the student. But that can keep you from starting if you don’t know of a meditation teacher in your area. Fortunately you can learn meditation from a book, from a guided audio mp3 or CD, or online. Technology is helping to bring ancient practices like meditation more and more into the mainstream culture.

    I teach and practice heart meditation and you can learn more on my website. Connecting with our hearts is a powerful and relaxing and healing technique.

    Peace!
