Finding a Meditation Teacher

Useful post by Michael Taft on an important aspect of mindfulness practice. Though the practice(s) seem simple on the surface, there can be a lot of complexity in actuality. A teacher can help guide one through some of the puzzling moments as well as provide a fresh perspective.

Taft addresses these qualities you should look for in a teacher:

  1. They know what they’re doing 
  2. They walk the talk 
  3. They are kind 
  4. They are in the moment 
  5. There is not any hanky-panky with sex, power, or money 
  6. They have enough time to actually meet with you one-on-one every so often
