Is there a name?

Is there a name for that peaceful, clear almost 'high' feeling you get after a really good meditation session?

    I'd say it roughly corresponds to the Pali tems piti and sukkha.

    I get the same feeling after vigorous exercise. I’ve heard it called a “runners high”.
    Rarely get it from meditation these days.
    Maybe I’m not doing it right? :p

    Delusion?

    Oops … bad lobster :3
    I would suggest highs and lows and nothing very much are all non meditation states.

    @Jason has answered it technically but I would ask, what is the name for mindfulness that does not have a name?

    I like the word 'clear' or transparent. This just passing through state or stillness is being without form. In a sense it is mahamudra or dzogchen.

    It is important to ascribe no qualities or preferences to it. It is the just sitting of shikantaza
