New to Meditation?

“Stepping out of the busyness, stopping our endless pursuit of getting somewhere else, is perhaps the most beautiful offering we can make to our spirit.” ~ True Refuge (2013)

Dear New Meditator,

You are embarking on a journey that can deeply transform and enrich your life.  The most important thing to remember is to approach practice with a friendly, curious, non-judgmental attitude.

There’s no one style of meditation that is “best” or fits all people. We’ve offered you some basic practices below that you can explore to see which serve you well. You might end up with two or three that you use regularly as you establish a practice. Over the weeks and months you’ll internalize the instructions and probably practice more and more regularly without the guided meditation. But at times, you’ll find they will help in gathering your attention.

With loving blessings,

Tara
