It provides an overview of meditation in general as well as specific meditation techniques including:
- breathing meditations to pacify compulsive thinking
- mindfulness meditations to live in the present
- visualization meditations to open the heart and bring out our inherent loving qualities
- analytical meditations to transform our minds and re-align our view of ourselves and life with reality.
Students are also introduced to the Buddhist understanding of mind as a nonphysical entity that is a stream of constantly changing moments of consciousness. Because it is possible to change the mind through meditation, harmful mental habits can be eliminated and positive ones developed and strengthened. Students learn the various obstacles that can prevent the mind from remaining focused and methods for counteracting these obstacles. They also learn how to structure a meditation session and how to establish a long-term meditation practice.
