Lovely picture Can i use it on a flyer for a simple class?


To Anonymous: many of us find it difficult to still our rampaging minds in meditation. A "trick" I am learning with the help of many teachers is to simply accept the stray thought(s) that arise, noting what emotions they bring with them, then mentally set the thought aside for later, without beating myself up about my lack of control. In accepting rather than punishing, I am allowing myself greater peace. Also, I agree that the step by step techniques are helpful -- I use some tapes/Cd's for guided meditation as well. It really is ALL good.


Sometimes my mind goes in a million directions and I find it very hard to consentrate. Is there asolution for this?


Many people don't know how to meditate so I think this step-by-step approach is very helpful.

All Good

All meditation works if you want it to work...


This meditation really works. I tried it when I was very stresses out and when I was done I felt more calm and relaxed. Here's a tip... If a thought comes up in the middle if the meditation, slowly let it fade out of your mind until it is gone.


I went to try this and the time flew by! My only problem was that my left foot went completely numb. So I had to cut it short. Other than that mishap this meditation was great! Kudos


I was under alot of stress earlier this morning when I arrived to work, after lunch I decide to do a meditation exercise with the ninety year old woman that I am the caregiver of. The meditation really works, we both feel more generated and relaxed.


I had a headache after work today
and tried this and worked perfectly
to calm me down!


I had a headache and couldnt fall asleep. I tried this and i felt way more relaxed, my head didnt hurt as much and i could fall asleep easier! Great thing to do when your stressed!
