How To Do One Moment Meditation

This video from Martin Boroson shows how to do one moment meditation. The trick is to start with meditating for a minute because a moment is too short to recognize.

Believe it or not, Martin tells us not to meditate for more than a minute! Why? Here is what he says:

Because the point of the basic minute is to show you that you can make a meaningful change
in your state of mind quickly. So if you do it for longer you’re cheating.

With One-Moment Meditation you can also learn how to do the portable minute which is very useful when you’re standing in line, on a train, or stuck in a boring meeting…

And when you can meditate in a moment your whole day can be filled with mediation. Because it takes no time at all.

The steps for one minute meditation are:

1. Find a place of relative solitude.
2. Sit down.
3. Place your legs in a relaxed but fixed position.
4. Sit up.
5. Set your alarm for exactly one minute.
6. Place your hands in a relaxed but fixed position.
7. Close your eyes.
8. Allow your mind to settle into your breathing.
9. When the alarm sounds, stop.

Watch the video and try it now.

Once you master one minute meditation, you can move on to one moment meditation. To learn one moment meditation, I recommed this book: One-Moment Meditation: Stillness for People on the Go. I’ve just ordered it myself.
