A meditation for beginners

Someone messaged me on Twitter and asked if I could recommend a “meditation for beginners.” Here was my response.

A good beginning meditation is to choose one of your senses (seeing, hearing, smelling). Then focus on what that sense is experiencing in this moment.

The sound of birds chirping

The feeling of the sun on your skin

The smell of spring in the air

Give your attention to it fully.

Notice your concerns of other things fade away

As you feel yourself being filled up by your full attention

to the experience of the moment.

That’s a place to begin :-)
