In support of my own autoimmune health, I’m taking a sabbatical for the month of December and releasing two of my favorite episodes from the archives that you might have missed. Today’s episode is one of the most popular of all time. If you think you can’t meditate, this podcast is for you! Do you picture meditators sitting quietly and peacefully with completely empty minds, people genetically wired totally differently from you? Let me tell you a secret: those people don’t exist. Even the Dalai Lama has thoughts while he meditates. The mind is designed to think, so meditating isn’t about stopping thoughts; it’s learning how to notice and detach from them. And while some people might find sitting still easier than others, there are actually many ways to meditate, including moving meditations or simply learning how to be mindful in daily life. My guest is Jeff Warren, who co-wrote the book Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics. Jeff is a world-renowned meditation teacher who is known as the “MacGyver of Meditation”. He excels at “fixing” people’s meditation problems. In this episode, we talk about common meditation obstacles for people with autoimmune disease, and how to overcome them.
