Just as last week the forum seemed to be abuzz with threads that relate to the Feel Your Feelings portion of the recovery program (click here for details), this week the forum seems to be abuzz with threads about meditation. For example, Andrew Miller, MFTI has described Mindfulness Meditation as being key to his own healing in this post. Stock Trader has emphasized a mindful approach to guilt (link) and to panic (link) in two excellent posts in the forum and has also suggested mindful approaches in the chat room. Finally, Enrique has discussed starting to meditate in theMaking it to the Boston Marathon 2014 thread. If you are interested in learning about meditation, you can find all of our resources related to meditation and TMS using our custom TMS search engine at search.tmswiki.org: http://search.tmswiki.org/results.html?q=meditation Of course, especially given that we are continuing our theme of discussing different parts of the TMS Recovery Program donated by Alan Gordon, his section on mindfulness is a great place to start: http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/TMS_Recovery_Program#Mindfulness In the chat room, Stock Trader said that what got him into mindfulness meditation was this post: http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/Mindfulness_Meditation If you'd like an overview of mindfulness meditation, you can find it here: http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/Mindfulness_Meditation Should you want to go a bit deeper, Enrique described purchasing the following book in the Boston Marathon thread: http://www.tmswiki.org/ppd/8_Minute_Meditation I think it's a great book and learned a lot from it. Like last week, I'll open up the call half an hour early for an informal check-in. But, the official discussion will still start at 9pm ET/6pm PT. Hope to see you there! (and I do mean see - if you like, you can always turn on your webcam like Bruce and I do. They aren't recorded, either.)
