Deepening Your Meditation Practice: Six Essential Factors
with Swami Karunananda, E-RYT 500
In this previously recorded workshop, Swami Karunananda presents the four main types of meditation and how to establish a strong and consistent practice. Common obstacles and how to overcome them will be addressed. She discusses the importance of accountability and how to set up a support system. You will emerge with a personal practice plan to serve as an anchor and guide for the months ahead.
Practical and profound—those words best describe meditation. It is practical because it makes the mind stronger, clearer, and calmer. This leads to greater harmony in our relationships, efficiency in our work, and emotional balance as we move through life. Because of the mind-body connection, our physical health improves as well. It is profound because, ultimately, it enables us to transcend the mind and realize our true nature, a state of supreme peace and joy—free of all sorrow, fear, suffering, and delusion.
Swami Satchidananda used to say: “Meditation is the most important practice. Most of our problems in life would be solved if we meditated regularly.” That is because our experience of life is based on the condition of the mind, how we perceive and respond to situations. Meditation enables us to understand and gain mastery over the mind.
