I love this conversation between Michael Stone (yoga teacher, Buddhist teacher, psychotherapist) and neuroscientist Willoughby Britton about the other side of meditation.
We often (myself included) extol the benefits of meditation, but sometimes meditation can be challenging and bring up feelings like anxiety, guilt and judgement.
I know that there have been times when a specific type of meditation (the one I was taught, actually) seems to exacerbate my racing thoughts, so those days I switch to a guided meditation or walking meditation. In other words, for me, one size doesn’t fit all.
Enjoy the conversation
