    I thought it would be interesting to know our collective meditation experience!

    Would you care to vote? :)

    Playing devil's advocate

    In some traditional Native American cultures they would say we've all been meditating since the moment we entered life; that Life itself is the meditation, but we're just too busy to realize that.

    When anyone ever asks me this question, I've been answering, "about 6 months", but then I started thinking: it was meditation that got me through last Christmas without having a breakdown - I'm in retail toys. So that would mean that I've been meditating for over a year now! Time flies when you're having fun!!! It was my naturopath who got me started as a way to de-stress, among other things.

    However, I can honestly say that I've been much more dedicated since downloading my free meditation course, several months ago. It simplified the process for me and I learned quite a bit.

    I have had many wonderful experiences, which in time I will relate here. I don't want to put off any newcomers by overwhelming them with information they may not be ready for. Suffice to say, there is a lot more to this than the science of brainwaves and it's not to be feared, but rather, embraced.

    I think this is a wonderful community. Thank you for the opportunity to share. Wendy
