When it comes to ways to learn to meditate, you’re spoilt for choice.
In 2019 there are tons of different ways to learn to meditate, including our free article on the correct way to meditate as a beginner.
That said, some ways are definitely better than others. For instance, a lot of people learn to meditate online by reading tons of random articles on various websites. As a blogger myself I obviously love the internet, but it is not the best way to learn to meditate. At least, not if you simply read random articles online.
The best ways to learn to meditate, I feel, are structured ways that actually start from the beginning and lead you through a proper schedule course.
With that in mind, here are my choices of the best ways to learn to meditate in 2019.
Best Ways To Learn Meditation In 2019
Each of these ways has it’s strengths and weaknesses. Pick the one which is best for you.
Our Complete And Free Meditation Guide
My passion here on THE DAILY MEDITAITON is to teach people how to meditate. That’s why I have created a massive guide showing you the top 31 ways to meditate.
In my guide I covered everything from Buddhist methods to modern techniques. And I explained the benefits of each different meditation technique.
Even though it’s obviously self promotional I do believe my guide to meditation contains tons of valuable information, and it is absolutely free. So definitely take a look at the link above.
Lessons [Online Or Off]
Probably the most traditional way to learn meditation is with a proper teacher. I personally do give meditations lessons online.
It’s important that you find a meditation teacher who is right for you. Otherwise they will teach you to meditate in ways that are not appropriate for you.
We all have individual styles of teaching that we like. And we all have our own beliefs. Some teachers are very friendly and teach a simple form of meditation. Others are more serious, religious types who will teach you not just meditation but about philosophy too.
A teacher is a great option if you can find the right one for you.
Books are still one of the best ways to learn to meditate in 2019. And there are lots of great books on meditation.
What makes books a good way to learn is that they are structured. Unlike a website where you jump from one page to the next in an unstructured way, books have a clear beginning, middle and end. You progress through a book in a logical fashion, so you’re always on the right step.
Another good benefit of books for learning meditation is that they are not distracting. You could get an app instead, but then you would be on your phone, probably the most distracting thing in the world.
What better way to learn to meditate than while on vacation at a retreat [READ: The Best Meditation Retreats].
Retreats are a wonderful way to learn meditation. For starters, most retreats have some truly excellent teachers. They’ve been teaching for years and have had many students, so they are very accomplish teachers.
There are specific retreats for beginners too, where you will be taught meditation in a structured way.
Then there’s the fact that you will also be with other people who are also learning to meditate. It’s a great way to socialise and to learn from each other.
Online Meditation Courses
The fast growing trend in meditation is the rise of online meditation courses. There are very many different online courses to choose from, so you will definitely be able to find one to perfectly match your needs. There are courses for kids, teens adults, parents, men, women, everyone.
A friendly warning: online meditation courses do vary by quality quite a lot. Make sure to read the reviews and comments from other people who have been in the same course, otherwise you might end up wasting your money. I want to make sure you take the perfect course for you, so do be sure to do your homework before signing-up.
