How To Meditate For Beginners

How To Meditate For Beginners! In this video, I'm going to tell you, where to meditate, how to meditate, how to stop thinking, how long to meditate for, even how long before you start seeing the benefits. 


Meditation has almost become mainstream by this point, but most people are not doing it right. Or rather, they are meditating in a way, that will not make the habit stick over a long period of time. My Meditation approach is more geared towards the average person, as opposed to the monk who lives in the mountains. For example, I understand that a lot of people want to start meditating in order to help them sleep, I cover this specific topic in the video. 


I hope all you beginner meditators out there, become long term meditators after watching this!

Meditation For Beginners

So you’ve decided to start looking after the health of your mind by meditating. But where to begin? How to get started? What are the basics? How will it feel? What to expect? All perfectly normal questions, and, lucky for you, we’re here with the answers you need to get started.

Building a Stable Meditation Practice

When we begin to meditate, many of us tend to take on too much practice too soon. This often leads to a feeling that practice is a chore, and eventually we may give up meditation all together. In this short video, Mingyur Rinpoche shares how to establish a healthy meditation practice, one that will bring about long-term results. You can discuss this teaching in the Monthly Teachings Forum under the topic Building a Stable Meditation Practice.


This video includes subtitles in English, Chinese, Thai, French, German, Portuguese, Spanish, Bulgarian, and Russian.

Happiness is ALL in Your Mind: Gen Kelsang Nyema at TEDxGreenville

Simple, profound truths are the realm of this Buddhist nun. Her message? The gift of happiness truly lies within our own hearts and minds. Gen Kelsang Nyema, exuding a peacefulness that immediately connects with the audience, starts by asking three questions: Are you having a good day? Why? Tomorrow, would you rather have a good day or a bad day? She teaches that we cannot put our happiness at the whim of other people and of circumstances. If we want to be happy, we have to "stop outsourcing our happiness to other people" and cultivate a source of inner peace. What happens next is quite astounding. The whole crowd of 350+ people proceeds to meditate with Nyema. There's a little squirming at first, but as she leads the audience through a calm citation of how to rest the mind, audience members feel a collective relaxation flow into the room and through the people. Fascinating! Refreshing.


This talk was part of TEDxGreenville UNZIPPED, held April 11, 2014, at the Kroc Center in Greenville, South Carolina. For more information about Gen Nyema and her co-presenters, please visit http://tedxgreenville.com/2014presenters
