Types of Practice

Mindful Awareness Practice:

Open Monitoring: (Example: “Vipassana” in the Buddhist tradition). This practice allows us to become more present through focusing on the breath or other senses, while observing whatever might present itself in the consciousness.

Focused Attention: (Example: “Vedanta” in the Hindu tradition or modern "Visualization"). This practice allows us to gain greater concentration capacity through training the mind to focus on a mantra, a sound or other object.

Acceptance and Compassion: (Example: "Metta" in the Buddhist tradition and "Forgiveness" within the Judeo-Christian tradition). This practice allows us to better accept and love ourselves and others, often through guided meditation that helps uncover and fosters a greater awareness of connections.
