Meditation?

Postby Inception » Wed, 19 Jan 2011 1:23 am

facing a time in life where nothing is going accordingly. Neither health nor the work. Stress is building up every day the only solution I am getting around is to do meditation.

Anyone here who is in to meditation? Can we form a group to perform meditation 2-3 times a week, I just know the word meditation nothing else. I am sure it will benefit everyone

Anyone around?

I'm not an expert in meditation, but I had attend a few workshops. I had attend a couple of Eckart Tolle support group and I thought they were alright. I think they have gathering every month, and would love to get back into it. Let me know.

Yes - I'm interested!
But other than a bit of light reading about it on the internet (and a few novice tries at home), I don't really know how to meditate properly.

thanks guys for the response.

Well I am also trying to read up on the net, tried few times by myself but it does not work. I was watching this DVD "The Ultimate Meditation Guide" well based on it once u get to know how to meditate it can do wonders for you. Minimum 30 mins of meditation for those who are 30 years old.

how to begin?

I practice a particular type of meditation that is best done in a group setting, but requires a commitment of at least 5 days to achieve the full effect. There is a group here in Singapore that organizes these 5 day retreats, 2-3 times per year, the next one being in May. If you PM me I could arrange a preview evening if there are at least a few people interested. Otherwise I can put you in touch with the master.

I can certainly attest to this practice's life-changing effect. I have never met anyone who has regretted trying it. Looking forward to hearing from you :-)

For most of us it's all in the mind, we just have to think about it! :P

Of course, looking a Singapore's latest fertility rate, they obviously need something! :o

Well, well, Looks like its one of those perked up days of yours for sure! :cool:

Blue tabs won't help as long as the Rubber and the need for Apple Gadgets (like someone pointed out in another thread) are not eliminated.

But you know what, I get this feeling that everyone else on this thread is thinking that we are a couple of brats hijacking their thread...or is it only in my Mind? :wink:
