You might be surprised who you encounter when you start to meditate! Here are some of the characters you may come across:

When we are doing our personal work — whether it is meditation, inquiry or working with a practitioner — we need to find ways to support ourselves if we begin to feel overwhelmed.From time to time, we can become overwhelmed by strong emotions or energies in our body. They can arise spontaneously or as a result of being triggered by some external experience. Whichever it is, we need to be able to regulate ourselves so that we do not go into crises or overwhelm. We do this by developing strategies to stay present.

Meditation isn’t reserved for monks and mystics — it doesn’t have to be done while sitting in the lotus position on a cushion in a valley overlooking a beautiful vista. Nor is it reserved for temples, monasteries or churches. Meditation simply means sitting in silence. It can be done in any place, at any time.
