What is meditation for, and what will I experience if I try it? Is this a religious thing? Am I expected to give up any of my own beliefs? Do I have to have read or studied anything first? Is one type of meditation better than another? How do I know which type of meditation is right for me? These are all questions a person new to meditation might have. We assembled this series of introductions to help answer all of those questions and many more.
If your experience with meditation is limited, or you haven’t ever tried to do it before, listen to several or all of these recordings. The series should help put to rest any hesitations you may have, and give first timers the confidence to try. Each of the classes is conversational, and is about 10-20 minutes long. Each teacher comes from a particular path or experience, and offers a different flavor, but the classes are general in nature and will give you a good overview of the kinds of things that are taught and expected by different teachers. I suggest that you listen to one per day, but if you have more time, it’s okay to listen to as many as you like in one sitting. We welcome your feedback. And if you have any questions to ask a particular teacher, go to their personal Winter Feast page to find their contact information. They will be glad to help you.
