Meditation For Monkey Minds

Meditation For Monkey Minds

Meditation Anywhere

 

As a yoga and meditation teacher I have heard the same thing for years from my clients – “I can’t meditate! My mind won’t turn off!” And quite truthfully I thought the same thing myself for decades. I thought that I was the only yoga student that truly could not meditate. I would go into classes and see all the people sitting in lotus pose, eyes closed, hand and fingers in all sorts of mudras (yogic hand positions). I too would assume the yogic meditation position as we waited for class to start. But I was a fraud!!! My mind was skipping all over the place! Even in Savasana (Corpse Pose) I would feel relaxed, but my mind was nowhere close to “clear” as my instructor had urged. I would listen to my breath, I would chant Om’s, I would try and try to clear my mind… but alas, I still had “Monkey Mind”… (more…)
