Anapanasati. Excellent session, I focused on no trying too hard to focus but instead on letting the focus arise itself and I got pleasure from the breath which is always good.

Vipassana practice. I sat with profound grief over the recent death of a dear friend of mine. Being present with what is.

Very nice piano score. Feel fresher as I go back to more work. I liked the guided visualization - really imagined myself touching the leaves in the forest.

Taught a 4-hour masterclass today on mindfulness of emotions. Feel completely drained. Don't really know the reason, maybe it was the place, or the group, or it was my attitude or level of mastery of the topic, or some combination of the above, but I feel like this one was a fail. After good cla ...

Hello everyone. I would like to speak with someone more experienced than me in concentration meditation, since I practice Anapanasati. I have never had a teacher and have never belonged to a Sangha. If there's someone around here who's able and willing to speak personally to me through Skype or ...

Vipassana Day 3/10 Started with Anapana then switched to observation of crown and roughly went 1cm^2 bit by bit of all scalp->face->neck->ect. NOT running energy through those places, not DOing anything with energy, shear 'being there' observation. I messed this up with all the things I ...

Vipassana day 3/10 Anapana again all day, various sensations around the breath, but we focused into just a finger sized point under the nose, calm abiding easier and lasts longer. The Dharma talks & the food are amazing.

Could not sit in the day time, so sat before going to bed. Tired, didn't want to concentrate on anything, so was just sitting, and observing the tendency to grasp, to understand the ultimate (and fail) , to get clear unclouded mind, longing for differentiation, trying to focus on anything: all t ...
