#27 Meditation Rx for Monkey Mind, Boredom, & Obstacles Galore

We can have the perfect meditation accoutrements adorning our perfect, meditative environment. But when we sit down, expecting our minds to still, distractions to vanish, and inner turmoil to cease–simply because we’re meditating–we’re setting ourselves up for failure (and usually more tension than we started with!). Meditation isn’t about seeking some tranquil space. Nor is it about overriding sadness, depression, monkey mind, or fatigue.

In today’s Poolside Sutra, we’ll explore what meditation really is- and, hopefully, you’ll discover that it’s a lot more accessible than you thought.

If you’re struggling to get (or stay) on your cushion, much less making friends with yourself once you do, today’s episode is for you.

If you love these Sutras, please consider joining me for my upcoming SHE Yoga & Meditation Teacher Training, now open for registration.

At this unconventional gathering, I’ll share the under-the-hood techniques and principles I’ve used in my own yoga & meditation for two decades — and taught to thousands of women, worldwide. Whether you’re aching to support other women or just deepen your own practice, you’ll find the feminine heart of yoga and meditation there. And, yes: we’ll have plenty of pool-time, too.

What if what you’re seeking is already right here? Discover simple things you can do to experience your wholeness more often– starting right now. 

Whether you’re brand-new to the feminine spiritual path and Internal Family Systems or have traveled this path for years, these seven, fundamental teachings will help you walk your healing journey more courageously and gracefully.
