I have been reading a few books, reading some discussions, following some links. I recently finished thirty hours of logged meditation following the breath. I have not attended any retreats or groups. Is it possible to self-assess my skills and understanding and to self-prescribe a progression of bo...

alaska :)

Hi! Finally, things are really making sense. I am reading books and I have started along the 8-fold path. I've completed about 15 hours of meditation focusing on breath. I am a single dad.
