23 Types of Meditation — and a Recommended Website

Just a heads up about a website I really recommend. I first came across it from a link to the 23 Types of Meditation posting from the excellent website Live and Dare: Meditation Blog and Non-Sectarian Spirituality. If you’ve ever been confused about all the different types of meditation, what distinguishes them from one another, or just what defines meditation at all — this is a terrific resource.

Author Giovanni Dienstmann methodically lays out the general types, religious groupings (Buddhist, Hindu, TM, Yoga, Self Inquiry, Chinese meditation, Christian meditation, guided meditations). If you don’t learn something after you’ve read this post, then you’re already an expert on meditation.
