It may seem strange at first, but with regular practice you will begin to breathe naturally through the diaphragm. Pause momentarily after each inhalation and after expiration. Concentrate on your breathing and feel the air passing through the nose into the diaphragm and keep the attention on the air that is expelled from your body.Advice Never meditate after a big meal; this will make you feel sluggish and tired.Use a stopwatch/timer/alarm to measure you sessions and progress.Develop other meditation techniques and use ones that prove more beneficial.Use other items to aid your meditation session such as meditation CDs, mala beads, meditation cushion or bench.Learning how to meditate for some can initially be quite difficult and may seem little progress is being made but with regular practice and commitment you will begin to feel the benefits and develop in many aspects of your life.Meditate like a zen monk in a few minutes. The assertion appears repeatedly in any Google search for meditation techniques. The claim is that listening to audio meditation recordings containing entrainment media (binaural beats, monaural and isochronic tones) will duplicate the experience of a zen monk who has spent many years in training.In a word, boshThe facts
Measurements of the brainwaves of meditating monks show that they have substantially increased levels of alpha and theta waves.Alpha and theta wave activity in the human brain can be increased by listening to audio entrainment mediaWhat conclusions can be drawn from these two facts?Only that the brainwave activity is similar in both cases. Nothing more.We cannot draw the conclusion that the experience produced by listening to audio entrainment is identical to that of a meditating monk, yet this is exactly the conclusion that some developers of audio meditation recordings would have you accept.Let’s be absolutely clear on this. Increased alpha or theta brain activity can be found in many different situations: daydreaming, just be fore and during sleep, just after awakening, for example. We would not say, in these situations, that the experience is identical to that of a zen monk meditating, so how can we claim it for an entrainment induced situation. Obviously, we cannot.That audio entrainment recordings produce a meditative state is not in dispute. They do. That this can be beneficial for human health and well-being is well established. That this state is equivalent to that achieved by a long-term zen meditator, is merely an assumption, and a pretty wild one at that.Zen monk training is a total life experience. It involves absolute attendance to the daily routine of a monk. This includes work, study, meditation, the observance of highly detailed rituals associated with many of the day’s activities and, most importantly, preoccupation with a koan; an unsolvable conundrum whose purpose is to break through the mind’s habitual dualistic thought process to a state of ‘no-mind’. (An example of a koan: what is the sound of one hand clapping?). The mind state of a meditating monk is a product of all of this experience, little of which is present when somebody spends 30-60 minutes per day listening to an audio meditation recording.So what?Well, let’s look at the results of many experiments with entrainment media.
