Mailbox: Beginning Meditation Resources

I did a Relax Focus Succeed presentation in Portland earlier this year. Afterward, Jonathan sent me an email. Since I get these questions a lot, I thought it would be helpful to post the answer here for everyone. Just remember that meditation is very person and what works for one might not work for another.

Karl,

I’ve been attending your seminars every time you come to Portland for the last 3 years.  EVERYTHING that you have recommended has been a winner.  I thank you for that.  Since your last visit earlier this month, I have been researching Meditation after you shared your personal testimony.  I am ready to commit to giving it a shot for the next 90 days, beginning with your MP3 I downloaded from the website.

Can you please give me a couple of recommendations as to what I need to buy?  There is so much info out there about it, I just am not sure where to begin or find the correct resource?  If you have some authors or cd’s you can recommend, I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks in advance!

My response:

For starting meditation, I think the best thing to use is an audio program that focuses on breathing or relaxation. It’s hard to know which to get before you buy them. Normally, a CD costs somewhere in the $10-$20 range. If you go to Amazon and search for Meditation CD you’ll find lots of them. Some are kind of whacky, but most are just focused on guided meditations, relaxation, stress reduction, or
mindfulness.

If you have pain you want to control, the Shinzen Young meditations are excellent.

For more mundane stuff, I really enjoyed Zen at Work by Les Kaye.

Beyond that, a class or a meetup (www.meetup.com). You’re primarily looking for intro Mindfulness or
Relaxation meditation. There are lots of places in the Portland area.

Have fun. Let me know how it goes.

I hope this helps.

🙂

We Should Rethink Our Obsession with a Good Ending

The first time I read Little Women, I enjoyed it so thoroughly that I remember wishing that it would not end. As I turned the pages and the remainder got smaller and smaller, I started to feel a sense of loss simply because the wonderful story would be over.

Social Media Lesson: Don’t Build Your House on Borrowed Land

I have long advised businesses to avoid building their business on someone else’s platform. This is particularly true of social media. The second half of 2022 is a great example of why you need to think carefully before you build a business on a platform you don’t control.

Millennials (and Gen X) Are Not a Problem to Be Dealt With

I have never believed most of the common wisdom spread about Millennials (and Gen X and Gen Z). And after about fifteen years of hearing “advice” focused on these younger generations, I think I finally figured out where the advice goes bad: It is extremely superficial and meaningless
