Meditation #1 - Allowing Everything to Be as It Is (Adyashanti)

Click on the image to enlarge

Here is how it is going to work

I will go through different types of meditation (check the list in the previous post) and the idea is to keep a log of each experience. I'll share two types of data: subjective and objective.

Subjective data
- Difficult rate: from -- (low) to ++ (high)
- Stillness/deepness rate: from -- (low) to ++ (high)
- Relaxation rate: from -- (low) to ++ (high)
- Some comments about the experience

Objective Data
- Duration (in minutes)
- Heart Rate Variability: from -100 (low) to +100 (high)
- Meditation Rate: from 0 (low) to 100 (high)
- Concentration Rate: from 0 (low) to 100 (high)

I hope you enjoy!

Important Note for the "sceptics"/"puritans": 
This is not a scientific experiment. I will do it just for the fun of doing it. :)

Who looks outside, dreams; who looks inside, awakes (Carl Jung)

Today I'm are going to start a new experiment. We know from science that practices of focused attention develops the pre-frontal area of our brain, which is responsible for many important functions (eg. body regulation, empathy, idea generation, fear modulation, etc.) and that is even associated with happiness and well-being.

My goal with this blog is to go trough different types of meditation and gather different kinds of information:
Objective data - Heart Rate Variability and brain waves
Subjective data - difficult rate, relaxation rate, "deepness", other comments

Come with me and dive into my own inner world!

I hope you enjoy it!
