Some General Tips:
find a space in your home that feels sacred or relaxing
sit in a way that allows your to feel “lifted,” either on a cushion or chair- think “strong back, open heart.” Ideally, the knees are grounded and below the sacrum.
light a candle to signify the practice has begun
create an altar with flowers, symbols, or pictures of a teacher that inspires you
a PRACTICE- I cannot stress this enough. Meditation is simply an act of sitting, over and over again. It is something you commit to- on “good” days and “bad” days. Sit, observe, stay open and curious.
training the mind to be one-pointed
awakening fully to life
- being compassionately open to all that is- the good and bad, pleasure and pain, etc.
- becoming more flexible and tolerant to the present moment
