Movement Meditation
While movement might be distracting for some, for you it's the greatest thing ever. Walking, yoga, gardening, and housecleaning can all be fused with meditation by inwardly chanting or simply practicing “witness consciousness”. The more basic the task, the easier it is to meditate at the same time; and you thrive on it.

Mindfulness Meditation
For you, meditation isn't just something you do once a day- it's a way of living. By staying grounded in a meditative state, the mind stays inwardly connected to a more powerful source. This “source” brings calmness and peace to everything you do…giving everything a new perspective.

Silent Meditation
This is considered to be one of the highest forms of meditation. The mind simply wants to bathe in the after-glow of peace, so sitting in silence is deeply refreshing because the mind finally finds a way to relax and let go. After all, it’s going all day and even all night. It never stops. A long period of silence without thoughts is deeply revivifying, and allows you to find a new perspective on reality.
