Dzogchen Meditation: A tradition of teachings in Tibetan Buddhism aimed at attaining and maintaining the natural primordial state or natural condition. It is a central teaching of the Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism, of which I was trained directly from my teacher, Zhenpen Nyima, who’s teacher Lama Kharwang was one of the teachers of the Dalai Lama in Tibet.
Kriya: The Kriya yoga system consists of a number of levels of pranayama, mantra, and mudra based on techniques intended to rapidly accelerate spiritual development and engender a profound state of tranquility and God-communion. Kriya Yoga was brought to international awareness by Paramahansa Yogananda’s book, ‘Autobiography of a Yogi,’ and through Yogananda’s introductions of the practice in Self Realization Fellowship, of which I have been a devotee since childhood.
Mindfulness: Mindfulness is the psychological process of bringing one’s attention to the internal and external experiences occurring simultaneously in the present moment. This can be developed through the use of guided techniques.
