Is meditation religious?
No, meditation is secular, and can be practiced by anyone, regardless of religious affiliation.
What kind of meditation do you teach?
I teach multiple techniques and styles, but my main focus is mindfulness meditation, which simply means nonjudgemental awareness of the present moment.
I don’t think meditation is for me.
That’s kind of like saying exercise isn’t “for” you. The benefits are proven, but you have to get into the habit. Also, there are many different kinds of meditation, so it’s important to try other techniques. Trying meditation once isn’t going to yield any results.
I am not comfortable sitting cross-legged.
You don’t have to sit cross-legged to meditate. You can sit on a meditation bench or pillow with your knees tucked under you, or you can just sit in any upright chair. Some meditations are practiced while lying down!
