I started back in the day with body scan dives, with visualisation site time, hour long.

Here's the one by Jon Kabat-Zinn. This programme was started in 1978 at University of Massachusetts Medical Centre.



I remember the long-ish body scans too, Adder. They were not my "favourites"... :P

Actually, Ros, you don't have to "work up" to any length of time. Indeed, you don't even "have" to do it at all.

Meditation is the one thing that one cannot put any effort into. "Meditation" means coming back to centre, "media". The only way to work on it is to "be there". It is not a failure if the mind wanders off - minds do that. Wandering minds means that they are healthy and functional. When it happens, you just have to notice where it went, and then - without judgement - just return your attention to where you need it to be 'right now'.

I will emphasise : without judgement ! If your mind wanders off a thousand times in five minutes, then just bring your attention back a thousand times.

If it doesn't wander off at all, then ask yourself if you haven't slipped into a coma or died ... at any rate, meditation is very hard to fail. It is also the only task that has no planned purpose. So, if we are meditating "because ... X, Y or Z," then we are not actually meditating.

"Meditation" is just "being there". Who can really screw that up ? ;)
