Ever heard of such a thing? I tell you, it’s better than you think. Of course, it would be preferable to sit with a group or a friend or a teacher — but in absence of those people — or while they’re not around, why not try this?
The style is called Aro Meditation, and it’s a fairly obscure Tibetan branch of Buddhism, by their own account.
You simply type in your email address and they send you a weekly email with meditation instructions, and some thoughts about meditation, each week.
The weekly reminder is quite handy for developing the habit. And the prompts are interesting. They say it’s 18 weeks, but I got emails for longer. But they were never bothersome, nor did they ever become spam in any way.
I am not affiliated with them in any way, but I tried it and if you’ve read this far — you should too!
