Face is twisting

Postby libraryman » Fri Nov 01, 2013 12:43 pm

I have a question regarding my meditation. Since more than 3 years, after my first vipassana (Goenka) retreat, I have the feeling that my face is moving, twisting. Sometime if I feel more relax, all my upper body is twisting. Does anyone have an idea of what is it?
Thanks for any advices

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo

With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

Thanks both of you for your answer. It's not painfull at all. It's only strange sensation. I will observe it and let it go!
Also, I don't think it's teeth-grinding, I ask around me and my dentist never talked to me about this, but when i sleep i'm talking a lot and sometime shouting. :smile:
Thanks again
