Interestingly, I am editing a friend's instructions on commencing a meditation practice.
Its not ready so I will not offer that particular document yet.
Have a look at some of the pinned resources in the meditation forum and also in the introductory resources in the Discovering Theravada Forum.
kind regards,

Ben
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.
