Dear Dhamma friends,
From time to time in the course of meditation practice, we might find that we get a bit stuck and are not quite sure how to continue, or we might feel confused about what we are experiencing. At such times it can be very useful to discuss our practice with another experienced meditator or a teacher. The questions below were asked by yogis in retreats that I have taught. You might wish to have a quick look at the titles below and see if you have wondered about any of these things.
I hope that something here might be helpful to you.
