I'd say better than sex, but this is a family forum
Since when has that stopped us

I'm sure classes (first hand experience) is much better, but I think I'm going to give it a go alone.....and practice makes perfect! LOL
Personally I would never do it on my own, unless I was super good.

Find a good teacher. The one I saw when I went was also a qualified hypnotherapist, as well as a fantastic yoga teacher.

I loved the meditation! As this thread shows

However, if you find a good recording, I'd use that too. I often use hypnotherapy recordings just to relax. So I suppose I do still do it, but not as often.

Bodhi is the opposite of ignorance, the insight into reality which destroys mental afflictions and brings peace.

Meditating is pretty easy when deaf. :P

I used to do it a bit, and I still do sort of. Usually when I'm out hiking and find a nice spot. It feels nice.

I actually found a place that is semi local (not the town that I live in, but the one that I work in) that has a meditation class, so I think I'll check it out. I remember my grandma, a devout Catholic, started meditating when I was a kid and did it daily for a half hour. As a kid it just seemed boring--lol--I just knew to go find something else to do so I don't interrupt grandma's meditation.

Interestingly, I've had a few occasions in life over the last week when I definitely would have gotten pissed-off by people prior to commencing my meditation/breathing techniques; however, I had no reaction, rather I just looked at what was transpiring and did something about it after reflecting a bit and then thought to myself "Wow! I didn't instinctively get angry!"

Very pleasant experience and that's after some simple daily breathing techniques, not hard-core meditation or anything!
