These Thai meditation cushions were given to me about 20 years ago, and I can count on the fingers of one hand how often I have used them. I decided that it was finally time to send them off to a better home.
The friend I gave them to picked them up tonight. In a few days he will be heading to a week’s silent retreat, where he will be meditating for 10 hours each day. No tech, no music, no reading, no writing material.
I was fascinated to hear 2 things:
– the retreat sells out its 120+ tickets within 2 hours of them going on sale, and
– most of the guests are in their 20s and 30s.
Now that I wasn’t expecting.
I have long felt that our bodies and minds (visibly whether young or old!) were not designed to cope with the pace and volume of stimuli of our modern lives. That is why I now run Creating Space.
If you are overwhelmed, get in touch… or find a silent retreat to escape to for a while.
