Taking meditation training this week

I have signed up to take a Sahaj Samadhi Meditation course provided by the Art of Living Foundation. Sahaj Samadhi means “Natural Enlightenment” and is a Mantra-based meditation method. I will start on Tuesday evening and have four three-hour sessions.

I became interested after taking the AOL intro course. One evening, I just started meditating and with my increased sensitivity to my breath, it came naturally and felt sweet. My breath served as a compass to guide my concentration. I had previously done meditation exercises, but I felt as if I was just going through the motion.

That’s why I want to get some help with my meditation practice — get the foundation right and then some gentle tutoring in the initial phase.
