  • Are there any religious conflicts from meditation?
  • How is a session carried out?
  • Is there anyone who shouldn't meditate?
  • Will I have to sit cross legged for long periods?
No. Virtually every religion has a contemplative tradition which involves it's own version of meditation. While the surface structure of how that is carried out may vary, the deep structures of what it is achieving are very similar. In the session I lead, there will be no requirement for you to choose or change any religious viewpoint and all techniques are suitable for use in conjunction with any religious preference you have.
Each session will be unique to your goals and levels of progress so far. They will generally contain some discussion about where you currently are and what goals you are hoping to achieve. A focussed practiced with instruction will be carried out. This may involve several shorter practices which allow for easier beginnings and may involve a longer session for deeper submersion. Further discussion and goal setting for the future will then take place in reflection of how the practices are contributing to your well being.
If you have a mental health condition where stillness and silence or levels of guided introspection are not advised, you should consult with your mental health professional before initiating a meditation practice. Aside from that, pretty much everyone will benefit. Meditation in itself will not solve serious issues and you may wish to consider counselling or other forms of psychotherapy if your meditation is increasing your awareness of uncomfortable issues for you.
No. With the process I teach, you can choose to sit however you feel most comfortable, so a chair or meditation stool, cushion or mat is perfectly acceptable. Some of the practices I teach allow you to meditatie while standing.
