Go “out of your mind” daily
Many of my patients express an interest in meditation but don’t know where to start. They list the books they have on their shelf that they intend(ed) to read
I am a big fan of the philosopher and educator Alan Watts and there are great number of resources where his audio recordings are available.
He elucidates the “why” and the “how” in a way that gets to the heart of the practice. I really like his approach and although this video/audio is over an hour, you can listen to it in sections (per your own ability to absorb) and come back to it. Refrain from attempting to “get it” in a single listen and be open to multiple listenings so all the layers have a chance to come together.
