Many friends are curious about my 10-day meditation experience. Some of them even worried that I would become a nun after these 10 days.
10 days of meditation? What do you do besides meditation? Just sit and meditate the whole day? And you can’t talk at all in these 10 days? Not even during lunch or dinner?What? You don’t even have dinner? Oh my god… You sure you want to do this to yourself? Girl, you will go crazy… (and on and on my family and friends worried…)
We are often amazed by how quickly time flies when we look back to past events. Yet, this is not the case for my 10-day meditation experience.It’s loooong! While a day of 10+ hour of meditation passed by unexpectedly quicker and easier than I had imagined, 10 days of meditation with the same daily schedule (except Day 4 and Day 10) passed by killingly slow. I noticed how everyday passed by.Even though it was the same daily schedule, the material learned, my feelings about this course and of myself were very different everyday.There were times I was grateful that I made it to this course, and there were times I felt like crap and wanted to escape from this prison-like camp.
