Pressure In Head While Meditating?
I've been practicing Vipassana meditation twice a day for the past week and a half and I think things have been going relatively well for being a noobie. I do 20 minutes on my lunch break and half an hour at home in the evening. On days off, 1/2 hour and 1/2 hour. Anyway, in the past three days, I have felt something that feels like "pressure on my brain" (only way to describe it) from one temple across the forehead to the other temple. It is not painful, just a pressure and often takes a while to subside after meditation. Any ideas? I feel that my face is relaxed, so I don't think I'm doing anything odd there. Also, the first few days of meditation, I had spontaneous feelings of extreme joy while sitting, but that has been replaced by just a general sense of calm...this is typical, correct?
