Meditation takes many forms. Let’s turn our attention to four of the more common meditation techniques. Each of these practices takes a slightly different approach to awareness, and they can even be used to complement each other.
Transcendental meditation (TM) is a form of meditation that involves going beyond, or transcending, thoughts to experience being alive in a fundamental way. Underneath the loud surface layer of thoughts lies that state of Being, an enjoyable place of stillness beyond our conscious awareness. TM is a method to reach that deeply calm place.
