Most of the problems we experience when we are new to meditation come from straining at our concentration. It is common to expect meditation to be like other activities where we can “push hard” to accomplish our goal. In meditation, however, if we exert too much pressure we just get tense and tired.

Meditation should not be like paddling upstream; it should be like sailing. There is work to be done, but once we have “put up our sail” our meditation should feel relaxed and spacious. In this course, come learn how to “sail” in meditation so you can deeply enjoy this meaningful experience.
