You have embarked on a journey that others have done over thousands of years. May their awakening inspire and support you. May the sincerity of your practice heal and free your spirit.
*Sit every day even if its just for a short period. Intentionally dedicating this time of quieting – is a gift to the soul!
*Pause Often A few times each day (or each hour on the hour) pause a moment. Re-establish contact with your body and breathe. Allow time to pause and explore this moment in time – the space of a pause will allow you to rebalance, regroup and come home.
*Reflect regularly on your intention for starting meditation – health, happiness etc
*Join a meditation group or practice with friends. Use inspiring books, reading inspiring articles or listen to beautiful guided meditation CDs. Nourish yourself.
*If you miss a practice for a day, a week or a year – simply begin again. Simple.
*Don’t judge your practice – rather accept what unfolds and trust in your capacity to be with yourself and to learn.
*The art of meditation is to practice with curiosity, kindness and a gentle touch.
