Meditation for the Digital Age [www.mindtraining.io]

mindtraining.io is being crafted by two millennials who have been practicing and teaching meditation for their entire adult lives (Vincent and Emilly Horn, founders of The Buddhist Geeks). They’ve developed an in-depth online course to introduce people to five styles of meditation.

This program is designed for the digital age and it represents their synthesis of Buddhist meditation and secular mindfulness techniques. The five styles of meditation include:

  1. Concentration: strengthening the muscle of attention
  2. Mindfulness: noticing what you notice as you notice it
  3. Heartfulness: inclining the mind toward opening the heart
  4. Inquiry: using the power of questions to open up new vistas
  5. Awareness: simply being with what is
