What does meditation feel like? When you let go very deeply, what’s happening in your awareness? There are different hallmarks of deep meditation. As you move deeper into meditation, you begin to recognize these for yourself. Here are two key characteristics of deep meditation you might recall from your own experience. Nowhere To Go When you are absorbed in meditation, you have the overwhelming feeling that there is nowhere to go in all the world. You are in the middle of everything. In fact, your house could be burning down, your kids could be pulling on your mustache, and it’s still unlikely you’d want to respond. When you feel that there is nowhere to go, it’s significant. It’s the opposite of what many of us feel most of the time. It means that you really feel that everything is fine. And more than that, you feel that everything is perfect. Reality is whole and complete just as it is. You re convinced that you couldn t add a single thought, feeling, or experience to ma

It’s hard. You want to meditate. You are longing to let go. But you have a towering task list and maybe a bunch of hungry mouths to feed. Everything is moving a little too fast and feels just beyond your reach. That deep sense of flow that happens when you are relaxed, at ease, and…
It seems like we can’t go anywhere on the Internet these days without running into a story about the benefits of meditation. And it’s 100% true—studies show that meditation can decrease stress, increase focus, and even provide relief for suffers of chronic pain and illness. But the fact remains that meditation isn’t easy, especially for…
Do you ever have those moments when you feel that everything in your life is crystal clear? Everything comes into resolution and you know that this moment is perfect just as it is. You have everything you need to be happy. This moment is full. The Present Moment Of course, teachers like Ram Dass and Eckhart Tolle have written classic books like Be Here Now and The Power Now that describe this phenomenon. Of course, they are talking about the radical immediacy of enlightened awareness. That kind of awareness is also a hallmark of deep and powerful meditation. In this special guided audio from meditation teacher Jeff Carreira, you ll experience a deep and powerful immersion in the present moment. Jeff skillfully leads you to the heart of your own awareness, stripped of the future, the past and your fears, and desires. I hope you enjoy this special guided meditation, which includes a gentle flute soundtrack from master flautist Rodrigo Tarrazza. One last thing, I also recommend you lis
What is the dark side of meditation? As meditation goes mainstream, there are risks of practicing without a teacher or guide who knows the territory.
Morgan Dix's insight:
“Does meditation have a dark side? Can a three thousand year old practice promoted by the Dalai Lama actually harm you? Well, the simple answer is yes. Like any new endeavor taken to extremes without proper guidance and preparation, it’s not without its risks. But it’s complex, and if you are interested in meditation, it’s worth learning about. And I’ll be honest with you, until recently I never gave it much thought. After meditating for 20 years, the broad arc of my experience has been exceedingly positive. But it’s included a healthy dose of pain, struggle, and suffering along the way. And I must admit, the emerging discussion around the shadow side of meditation has given me cause to reflect on my experiences."
What is meditation? I mean, what actually happens when you sit down to meditate? One of my favorite answers to that question is simple. But I don’t think you’re going to like it. Here it is... Nothing. Yup. That's what happens when you meditate. Nothing at all. That’s what meditation is. The art of doing nothing.…
