i have recently done the 10 day course and it was one of the best things i have ever experienced. have continued meditating (near) every day because it keeps me returning to a sense of deep calm and focus and enjoyment – feelings prior far more rare even tho i would have described myself as happy and digging life. the new digging is at a deeper level and much of what i used to perseverate upon seems reduced in import by orders of magnitude. practically the whole notion of "intellect figuring out and resolving issues", seems now completely a misguided process. returning to the state of calm fertilizes better thought which crowds out the worries. worry process becomes reduced and unmasked when it arises. the whole physical reaction cycle different. awareness that how we feel (and happiness) is in our bodies – we know the value of physical exercise. this is similar. a rigorous training that just starts doing what it's advertised to do. veritably mind blowing, yep.



I'm happy for you!

Makes me feel like all the book learning I ever did was all for naught (aside from technical learning that helps me do my job).


thanks! ...but let me clarify. book learning is utterly awesome!! when i say "resolving issues"... i mean purely the personal, subjective, 'worrisome' kind... the endless spinning narratives we struggle within. the attachment to solving issues these through out-thinking the anxiety: this process got deprecated ;)


Well, as you keep meditating, it becomes more and more clear that all the answers you are burning to understand are found within.
