Lions Roar : May 2017
All right, so you’ve started meditating regularly. Congratula- tions. You’ve checked all the boxes of “Starting a Meditation Practice 101”: You are sitting for a consistent amount of time, maybe 10 minutes, each day. (And by that we mean “most days,” right?) You have a consistent time of day when you like to practice, perhaps right after you take a shower in the morning or when you come home from work. You have a consistent space where you like to meditate. You might have even invested in one of those special meditation cushions. So what next? What does “Starting a Meditation Practice 102” look like? Here are a few options to take your practice to the next level. Find a Community You Want to Sit With Some people love to meditate on their own and more power to them. But one thing I’ve found is that there is a certain energy that comes from meditating in a group. It’s the difference between singing alone in the shower and singing in a choir—it just feels different. Plus you’re much less likely to jump up mid- way through a session and run through the wall if you’re shoul- der-to-shoulder with other people going through the same struggle you are. Choosing the right meditation community is a bit like choosing the right musical instrument. You could grab a violin and play it for years, but if it’s not the right fit for you, at some point you’re going to walk away from it. Try out different med- itation communities to see what feels right to you. This is not a deeply analytical approach, but more an intuitive one in which you ask yourself, “Where do I feel part of a community?” What’s the Next Step? You’re meditating, you’re seeing the benefits, and now you want to go deeper. LODRO RINZLER suggests some next steps on your path. PHOTOBYMICHAELKRASS LION’S ROAR | MAY 2017 64
