Types of Meditation We Teach

At Healing House of Scottsdale, we generally focus our coaching sessions on what is commonly called mindfulness meditation. Mindfulness meditation works by focusing our thoughts on our breath, and by utilizing concentration exercises to help us calm the limbic system (our 'fight or flight' response center), as well as by normalizing the stress of excessive thinking. However, holistic medicine means we always look at each patient based on their individual needs, and therefore we sometimes will vary our approach to coaching meditation accordingly.

Meditation can be thought of as a way to not only way to calm the mind, but also as a way to see the world in a different way. What we react to in life as necessarily good or bad can just be seen simply as what is. Advanced meditation focuses your meditation on not just meditating in a quiet room or outdoors, but instead on remaining in a state of meditation at all times. It helps you bring your peace of mind to the world at large. The ultimate aim of meditation is to make not just you a happy peaceful person, but to make the world you inhabit a happy peaceful place as well.

About Meditation

Meditation is the practice of calming the mind through exercises in mental awareness. Meditation is easy to do, but it helps to have someone coach you through the process. It only takes a few minutes each day to begin enjoying its rewards.

Usually people sit to meditate, focusing on their breath and their states of mind. But meditation can be practiced in many ways. Some people walk slowly, some people lie down, some people do free-form movements, some people sing or chant, and some people even meditate while they are doing the dishes or driving their car.

Why should I Meditate?

Not all meditation practices have the same goal, but you could broadly say that meditation has the purpose of helping us to create and maintain feelings of joy and peace of mind. And along the way, you may also discover many other benefits, too. At the Healing House in Scottsdale, we will adapt our meditation coaching to meet your specific goals. If you’re wondering why you might like to take up meditation, consider these questions:

  • Does your mind constantly spin out of control with excessive thinking?
  • Are you constantly plagued by disturbing memories from the past?
  • Are you always waiting for happiness to arrive in the future?
  • Are your emotions overly sensitive?
  • Are you prone to anger, sadness, worry, fear, or other negative feelings?
  • Are you having difficulty falling asleep?
  • Are you having a hard time developing self-discipline?
  • Are you struggling with stress and tension in my body?
  • Do you have high blood pressure?
  • Are you struggling to overcome addiction?
  • Are you in pain and want to avoid addictive drugs or dangerous surgeries?
  • Are you feel like I never have time to find a moment of peace?
  • Do you wish my life had more of a sense of purpose?
  • Are you constantly trying to figure out who you really are?

If you answered “yes” to one or more of these questions, then congratulations — you’re human! And of the simplest and most effective ways to help you with these very human problems is to begin the simple practice of meditation.

Why Do I Need a Meditation Coach?

Many Americans have heard of meditation, but very few practice it in a deliberate way — some surveys show as little as 8% have ever even tried meditation. Yet, the practice of meditation has been shown to have a huge number of benefits! According to a Dr. Yi-Yuan Tang, professor of neurology at the University of Texas, mindfulness meditation can be shown to “significantly improve attention, working memory, creativity, immune function, emotional regulation, self-control, cognitive and school performance, and healthy habits while reducing stress.” But in order to take advantage of these benefits, one needs to know where to begin. That’s where a good meditation coach can help.

At Healing House of Scottsdale, our meditation coach is Mukhtar “Muki” Ramsey. Muki has been practicing various forms of fasting and meditation since he was a very young child. His main internal work has been through a little known mystical form of meditation called the latihan kejiwaan (meaning “spiritual training”) of Susila Budhi Dharma, or SUBUD. He began diligently practicing the latihan kejiwaan at age seventeen and has attended at least one SUBUD retreat every year since. Muki also earned his Bachelor’s degree in Philosophy with a focus on Eastern religion, and he is a licensed acupuncturist with a four-year Master’s degree in the Science of Oriental Medicine. He makes a daily practice of mindfulness meditation, and he has coached many people to understand and take on meditation as an integral part of their path to peace, joy, and wellness.

Your meditation coaching sessions will consist of one-on-one discussion and practice over a 40-minute, uninterrupted period. We think individualized training is preferable throughout the delicate process of guiding the beginner into their meditation experience.

The Benefits of Meditation

Meditation has been scientifically shown to:

  • Reduce stress anxiety
  • Improve sleep
  • Ease pain
  • Increase mental focus, concentration, and memory
  • Stop excessive thinking
  • Increase a feeling of confidence
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Relieve depression
  • Expand creativity
  • Protect the brain from aging and dementia

But there are many more benefits to meditation than are listed, here. And best of all, once you begin your practice, it’s as free as the cost of a breath of air.

Meditation FAQ

Is meditation a spiritual practice or experience?

Not necessarily, but it can be – the choice is really up to the practitioner and how they define “spiritual.” Many people who have no belief or interest in a spiritual life practice mindfulness meditation, and with great benefit. At the same time, meditation can be essential to the enhancement of one’s spiritual life, especially some of the more mystical approaches. At Healing House in Scottsdale, we will always respect one’s wishes and beliefs regarding spirituality and religion, and our policy is to not breach the subject of spirituality or religion unless requested.

Will meditation interfere with my religious beliefs?

We cannot speak to an individual’s beliefs or to any particular institution’s teachings, but it is certainly not our belief that meditation will interfere with one’s religious beliefs or practice. As was stated previously, we will always respect one’s wishes and beliefs regarding spirituality and religion, and our policy is to not breach the subject of spirituality or religion unless requested.

What does "mindfulness" mean?

"Mindfulness" refers to a state of mind in which one remains in a place of awareness, observing one’s own thoughts, feelings, breath, and presence in the world. By remaining in a place of mindfulness, we can activate.

How often do I need to meditate and for how long?

Meditation is a bit like physical exercise, in that there are many ways to benefit from even a little bit of practice, and there is also such a thing as too much. When determining what will work best, we always try to strike a balance based on one’s own needs and capacity. But generally speaking, one can benefit from even a moment of meditative reflection, and one should expect a good result with 15 to 20 minutes every day. If you can do twice a day, that would be better. If you can eventually work your way up to 30 minutes to an hour, even if only occasionally, you will greatly deepen your experience. And for some, eventually there is almost no sense of having left a state of mindfulness – it is as if they are always in a state of meditation.

When will I start seeing benefits to meditation?

It depends on your goals and expectations, and it varies from person to person – but often we start to see positive results almost immediately.

Does it matter what kind of meditation I do to get results?

Yes. In the same way that it matters what kind of exercises you do in the gym and how you do them, there are beneficial ways to do meditation, and there are ways that are not so helpful.

How do I know what kind of meditation would work best for me?

You can do your own research, or follow your own gut, or you can come talk to our meditation coach. Understanding how to proceed can be tricky, and a good coach can help a lot.

How often do I need to make an appointment?

It depends on the individual and their goals. To start with, some people do well with once a week, some people do well with every other week. Eventually, once a month can be fine, or none at all – you may eventually find you can meditate on your own quite comfortably.

Do I have to be able to sit cross-legged like a yogi to do meditation?

Not at all!

Where does meditation come from?

There are meditation traditions from many parts of the world, and it’s impossible to say where it originated. One might say meditation began with the first human being who took a breath and noticed the feeling of awareness of its own feelings or thoughts.

Should I use music, candles, or incense?

Sure, if you want to! But they aren’t necessary.

How hard is it to meditate?

Meditation is very easy to do, provided you know how to begin. Unfortunately, many people think that meditation is hard to do because they have a hard time sitting still or turning off their minds. This concern is a lot like someone going to the gym for the first time and, after looking around and seeing lots of people who are super fit and muscle-toned, they decide to turn around and leave. They think they could never look like that. But actually if they just worked out regularly and got the help of a good coach, they most likely could get those big muscles. Meditation just is like that – with a little practice, you too can have a peaceful mind.

How can I meditate if I can’t get my mind to turn off?

Actually, this is a misconception about meditation. The truth is, you don’t have to turn off your mind to meditate. Now, you may eventually achieve states in which your thoughts become very quiet, but your mind is not likely to ever stop. And why would you try to stop your mind? You need to think; you need to be able to solve problems. The point is not to stop your mind, but rather to slow it down a little, and to relax into a state of mind in which your mind no longer bothers you.

Are there any proven benefits to meditation?

There have been hundreds of research studies on meditation, and most of them have demonstrated very positive benefits.

Are there any famous people who meditate?

Sure, but does it really matter? 🙂
