The fact is that most people find meditation to be boring. And if you are one of those people, I can't blame you for feeling that way. We live in a fast-paced, sensory-overload world and the experience of focusing on your breath, or repeating a word or phrase monotonously is a major divergence from so-called "normal".
The most well known forms of meditation are mindfulness (observing the mind, or focusing on the breath), mantra (repeating a word or phrase) and prayer (which may be mantra-style repetition or holding an intention). These are all fairly passive, subtle forms of meditation. With these types of meditation a long session (over 40 minutes) or many sessions are often required for you to have noticeable results. Due to a greater time investment, interest often wanes before significant benefits are achieved.
Active styles of meditation usually produce palpable results during the first experience. Active styles of meditation include kriya, pranayama, intensive breathwork and some forms of yoga and exercise. Active meditation is very powerful, unfortunately some forms have foreign and even cult-like attributes which have impaired popularity. There has been a need to extract the essence of the techniques from the somewhat odd traditions that are often woven within.
Both the active and passive forms of meditation have importance and contribute to health, but they must be taught in a manner that quickly engages the student. The Coherence Experience is the combination of active and passive meditations techniques which culminate in palpable, undeniable energetic experiences.
