6 months on

Postby Collective » Wed Nov 04, 2009 2:38 pm

After (probably more than) 6 months of meditation, I've distilled my practice as 'foucs on the breath, observe, non judgmentally any and all sensations that arise - then go back to focusing on the breath'. That about correct?

Satipattana? I have not heard of this

My current (vipassanna?) meditation has in no way been mastered - but I am sure I know what to do and what not to do. If this is reason enough to move on then I'd be interested in learning more
