Thinking about starting a meditation practice? Feeling daunted and, perhaps, intimidated by the many choices and strategies available for doing it “right?” No need to worry! Let me ease your mind about what meditation is all about.

#1: There really are no rules.

#2: This is all just about getting quiet, turning down the noise of our lives.

#3: And not judging or being judged.

#4: It’s about peace and self-acceptance.

#5: And self-awareness.

#6: Know you are precious.

#7: And you are worthy of your tender attention.

#8: Get quiet: sit or walk, it doesn’t matter how.

#9: Dive into the quiet beauty of yourself, even if it is noisy or scary in there.

#10: Just be there. Bless it all. It’s all you and it’s all beautiful. Show up every day: one breath, two breaths, maybe one hundred breaths…

It’s that easy. How do you get quiet?
