I tried guided meditation in a group for the first time today and I am very intrigued. It is something I have been interested in for over two years now but reading a book really didn't help me and I couldn't figure out how to record myself saying things that would help me. So I asked a friend if I could go to a half-hour session with her and she graciously invited me. I loved the process and if there was any day I needed it, it was today. I was able to follow for a while but I will admit to starting to lose focus about six minutes before the session ended. (I know it was about six minutes because the only way I could keep my mind from wandering too far was to start counting and I made it to 360.) Overall, I think that is a pretty good start for a first timer. I am looking forward to going back next week and to downloading something off of iTunes to use in the meantime. I'm not sure if that officially counts as what I learned today (since I am still learning) but I think it does!
How comfortable are you with seeking out opportunities to try something new?
