Question and answer about learning
- Question<br>What would you tell a beginner who
wants to learn about meditation but is a little
intimidated?<br>Answer<br>I would suggest that a beginner check out the What
Is Meditation article on Meditation Station
<a href=http://www.meditationsociety.com/what.html target=new>http://www.meditationsociety.com/what.html</a><br> This will give a basic understanding. Then, go to
the archives section and see if any of the techniques
seem interesting and then actually try them out. The
best way to learn about meditation is by meditating.
When questions come up (and they will), post them
here. We will try to help in any way necessary.

I would suggest visitng the website for the meditation society
http://www.meditationsociety.com/. There are lots of techniques
listed there. Try a few different ones until you find one that is
easy to follow. Perhaps the first thing to try is to just sit in a
quiet place, close your eyes, and focus on the sound and feeling of
breath. Just breathe natually. Notice your thoughts, but don't hang
onto them. Just watch them come and go. Watch and listen.
I hope this helps. Meditation can seem difficult when you are first
starting out (and even after you have been doing it a while for that
matter). Just try it and be patient and perserve. The hardest part is
the actual committment to sit down and do it. Just sitting quietly
and watching your breath is more beneficial than you may imagine.
