The Total Meditation System

This form of Meditation is called Total because the practice calls for a continuous state of Meditation. 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Yes, it is beneficial to do one specific meditation for 20 minutes in the morning and 20 minutes in the evening, but Total Meditation suggests that at all times you witness your interactivity with the universe and control your reactivity while maintaining a serene, blissful state. By having dozens of techniques to draw upon, no matter what situation you face in life, you will have a weapon in your arsenal to fight any oppression that is presented. There are specific Meditation techniques for emotional, intellectual, physical, and spiritual activity and reactivity, all of which bring a connection to the Witness within that is our Real Self.

No matter what you are doing at any given time, you will be able to maintain a calm self-control that lets you avoid the emotional distress, mental confusion, and physical helplessness that not being in a meditative state always brings. Most systems emphasize only one meditation technique. As so many practioners have found out the hard way, you may not always be able to do the one technique in every situation. For instance, if your exclusive technique is the repetition of a mantra, what do you do if your boss calls on you unexpectedly to do a presentation? You can't chant and talk at the same time. But you could do breathing or body awareness or emotional calming techniques. Similarly, lets say you have been focusing your meditative efforts on Hatha Yoga postures. What happens if you have a spinal injury and no longer can interact with your body? Once again, knowing breathing, emotional and mental techniques would allow your continuing meditative connection and thus enable you to handle this tremendously life-changing situation in the most advantageous way possible.

If you only know one road to take to get to your job, and that road becomes unpassable, you're out of business. It makes sense to have many alternative routes available and that is exactly what Total Meditation offers.
