    Hi,

    Ive started getting into meditation and am liking what its all about.

    Just wondered if anyone currently does it or go to classes.

    Any expiereinces or advice would be appreciated.

    Chaaars.
    Blessed is the man
    who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked
    or stand in the way of sinners
    or sit in the seat of mockers.

      I'm sorry, I have got so large sitting around contemplating my navel, that I can't see it any more.
      Exiled amongst the red and white, at the wrong end of the A/M27. (P)

      I've seen things you people wouldn't believe. Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion, I watched c-beams glitter in the dark near the Tannhäuser Gate. All those moments will be lost in time, like tears in rain.........Time to die.

      I have had had a daily meditation practice for the last 7 years.

      There are many different approaches to meditation and my advice would be to try out various methods until you find something that works for you and then try to stick with it.

      There will be times when the mind just wont seem to settle but these can be some of the most insightful periods. Seeing how the mind creates frustration, boredom, expectation, deals with the concept of time and how this is reflected in the body.

      My advice would be to join a local group then you can bounce your thoughts and experiences off other people.

      If you have any specific questions or want some advice let me know and I will try and point you in the right direction?

      just another voice recommending you do it
      i have flirted with meditation but not stuck sincerely to it yet admittedly.

      but go to a group meditation evening. when you open your eyes the sensation will be palpable... whatever sensation that is will probably be up to you!

      I don't quite get the need for 'group' meditation, as you can do it at home just as well and at any time basically.
      It's about centering yourself, finding the inner light of being, balancing the soul with the universe. A great and worthwhile exercise.

      Yoga is supposed to be brill - rather like to hear from people who do that.

      Yes, I have used several meditation/self-hypnosis CDs by a guy called Glenn Harrold....has really helped me a lot, and given me a sense of inner peace that was lacking for many years.

      Interesting bloke, Glenn Harrold....a real South London geezer, very colourful life, but he has a great gift. Check him out and let me know what you think.

      Good luck.

      Thanks for all the refreshing answers, much appreciated.

      Ive flirted with it for the past few months with a 10 min morning meditation and sometimes evening, but definately feel like i need to know more and a group sounds good.

      I looked at Bodhisattva Kadampa Meditation Centre

      Anyone seen or heard of them?
