How do I meditate?
For most of us without any previous experience, one day we hear from a friend, acquaintance, or through the media, that meditation is beneficial and we a have feeling inside: ‘I should try that.’
But the questions arise, "How do I meditate?" "What if I can’t, or is my mind too busy?" "Is there a ‘right way’?" "What’s the best way?"
There is no such thing as a silly question. As meditation guides at our center, we have seen that a majority of people who come to the center, just want to try it for the first time, and have their own set of questions that come up. We try our best to help each person navigate through these, so that they can feel confident in their practice and get the most out of it.
So, in addition to our ongoing free online series we would like to invite you to a special session called: ‘How to Meditate,’ every Friday, starting May 29th, at 5pm EST. This session will be hosted by Evan Shwam, musician and long-time meditator. Accompanied by a few guides from local centers in New York and New Jersey, Evan and the other guides will answer questions, give helpful tips and encouragement on your journey. Even if you don’t have any questions, but would like to listen and to find out what others are asking, we welcome you to do so.
So if you are a newcomer, or just want to know more about it, maybe heard about our online programs already, but want to know more first before joining, we are happy to help, especially during the month of May, Meditation Month! This just might be the best time to start your journey!
