It seems that everything has gone online these days. You can turn to the internet to find movies, music, and books. Much of our social interaction occurs online and we can shop online. People can work online, conducting meetings through internet video conferences.
With all of these ways we live while plugged in, it may seem strange that we can use the internet to unplug. Many people are turning to the internet to look for online meditation resources to help them calm their minds and take care of their bodies in today’s hurrying, hectic world.
There are many forms of online meditation. In its simplest form, there are a multitude of websites available that provide resources and instructions to help beginners get started with basic meditation practices and routines. For those who are more experienced with meditation and are working to expand their practice, there are web sites to help guide them into sitting for longer meditation sessions or focusing their meditation in a particular direction-perhaps contemplating a specific issue such as compassion for all.
For those who enjoy engaging more via an online meditation experience, there are online classes and even live meditation practices where participants can meditate with others all over the country or the world. For those who would like to utilize online meditation to help guide them, but want to meditate solo, meditation experiences featuring calming music and soothing or uplifting colors and imagery are available. With these, all a user has to do is pop in their headphones (or turn up their speakers), hit play, sit back and breathe. These kinds of online meditation experiences range from videos designed to help with basic relaxation to help relieving conditions such as depression or anxiety. No matter what kind of meditation you prefer, the internet can be a great tool to help you on your journey.
