Various types in meditation

Dear Doctor: What are the different types of meditation?

Dear Patient: There are six fundamental forms of meditation, they are: mindfulness meditation, guided visualizations - guided meditation, breathing exercises, mantras, music enhanced meditation, and movement based meditation. Many different traditions utilize one or several of these forms into their practice. Yoga, Eastern and Western religions, shamanic practices, energy cultivation models, and self-help techniques are but a few of the traditions. There are literally thousands if not millions of different ways and systems, but the six fundamental forms are the foundation of all these systems.
