So now you’ve got a regular (or even semi-regular) meditation practice going. Amazing! This is probably more than half the battle won right there.
But maybe now you’re asking yourself some questions. How am I doing? Am I getting anywhere? Am I just fooling myself and wasting time? Is this working?
There are no report cards or performance reviews to let you know how you’re doing when you sit down to engage with yourself in meditation. If you’re fortunate – very fortunate – you may have access to an experienced and qualified teacher who knows you well and can give you personal guidance. But a really good guide like is harder to come by than you might guess.
Fortunately for us, the masters of the past have left us with some tools and advice on how to guage just where we are in our practice, and also how to recognize and avoid common roadblocks that may arise on the path. Like what to do if your mind feels like an non-stop 24 hours a day 3 ring circus. Like what to do if you can’t help but nod off during your meditation session. Yes, even the highly realized beings of yore went through these same problems!
Join me for Meditation Tune Up at The Yoga Sanctuary Danforth on Sat July 22 from 9:30-11:30am, when I’ll share these tools and techniques with you. No matter what kind of meditation you are practicing, or what tradition you may be following, these are tried and tested methods that you can apply in your own meditation for better clarity and mindfulness.
Just starting out? Or maybe you’re meditation-curious and haven’t quite started yet? Come and learn what it often takes other people years to find out about meditation and save yourself a whole lot of time and grief!
We’ll also have some time for a general meditation throw-down, so bring your burning questions about meditation for an informal Q&A discussion.
