So TMS-based treatment (A. Gordon, Schubiner, Schecter, and Sarno) and mindfulness meditation are two approaches that have helped me immensely. But I find them inherently incompatible at times. In so many versions of TMS treatment, you have to confront/talk back to/stand up to your pain (in one way or another) and in mindfulness meditation (the versions I practice) you simply notice all experience without judgement. Giving up either of these approaches is a no-go for me. I want to continue them both, but sometimes I feel caught in-between and I manage to create a lot of pressure for myself trying to figure out how to balance them. A. Gordon's somatic tracking is the one approach I've found that has really let me feel coherent in using both TMS-treatment and mindfulness. That's great. But the problem for me is that I'm on a longer road of recovery. I've had TMS for over 12 years, and I've already cured 17 distinct symptoms over the past 8 months. But I'm not done, and I find that I CAN'T just keep using the same resource over and over. It grows stale for me. I have to keep reading new authors and finding new perspectives and just refreshing my focus. So it's time to move forward to new authors and I picked up Schubiner's Unlearn Anxiety book, but I find myself back in the old challenge of reconciling between TMS approaches and mindfulness meditation. It's really upsetting for me because I feel like either way I go, I'm doing something wrong. A feeling that is very familiar to many of us TMS types. I do find that actively expressing love and compassion for myself works well as a TMS treatment (rather than talking back to the pain) and it relates to a specific type of meditation that has been around for thousands of years (metta). So that's a good alternate. But I'm wondering if any other meditators out there have found good approaches. Thanks!
