The most common problem for beginner meditators is having a monkey mind, where we have too many distracting thoughts which prevent us from concentrating on our meditation object. In this video I provide you with eight meditation tips for combating our busy mind so we can stay focused on the object of meditation. These techniques explain how to gently and effectively relate to these thoughts so we can achieve a quieter mind and make greater progress in our meditation.
Choosing the right place and time for our practice of meditation can be just as important as the meditation practice itself. If the environmental conditions are favourable it can greatly boost our practice and we can begin to experience the fruits of our practice more quickly. This video explores some basic considerations about the time, place and other aspects that are important to ensure our meditation sessions will be a success.
