Deepen your meditation practice 🌀
3 years ago, I traveled to Nepal and interviewed with the Tibetan Buddhist Master, Machig Rinpoche. After returning from my trip, I wrote a blog article about the interview titled, “ The Tibetan Buddhist Secret to Healing your Mind”. In the article, I shared Machig Rinpoche's thoughts on the Tibetan Buddhist approach to meditation, the healing properties of meditation, and the causes of suffering. While in Nepal, I noticed that the Tibetan Buddhist approach to meditation personally allowed me to reach new depths and cultivate more presence during my meditation.
Even though I have been meditating for almost 10 years, I still have days when I struggle to reach the same level of depth as I did during those moments in Nepal.

“I can’t meditate!”…
A common challenge in meditation is dealing with a restless or wandering mind. Your thoughts might constantly race, making it difficult to focus and be in the present moment. So here are 3 tips to create more ease in your meditation practice:
Be consistent: Consistency is important in meditation. If you don't establish a regular practice, it can be challenging to experience its full benefits.
Get comfortable: Use a pillow, meditation cushion, yoga block, or chair. You can also try walking meditation.
Use a guided meditation app: Without proper instruction or guidance, it can be hard to know how to meditate effectively. We highly recommend checking out the Moments of Space app to get started!
