Don't try too hard to concentrate!September 30th , 2016
A little while back I attended a 9-day retreat with Patrick Kearney (www.dharmasalon.net), an excellent and very experienced meditation teacher. He gave some wonderfully helpful guidance for those of us with active minds (for whom isn't this relevant?) so I want to share some of those insights here. The bottom line is: "Don't try too hard to get your mind to stay concentrated, because concentration is not that important and it will only blow up in your face!"
