I have recently attended a local venue which provides opportunities for meditation for the group. Nothing could be further from my comfort zone but I find myself here exploring. Right or wrong, I have always considered misguided guided meditation a type of meditation with training wheels and have shunned the practice and even the idea - but this is what is offered. The only way that I can even begin to find some benefit from such sessions is to treat the guide as white noise. Otherwise, I can follow my breathe OR listen to the person speaking...but not both. Any suggestions as to how to get the most out of these experiences?
