Re: A Zazen question and some worries

Talk to the person in charge of the retreat. They may have dealt with similar problems in the past. You will be fine.

Part of sitting meditation is not letting the outside environment influence your mind as you sit. I once sat next to a woman who had a horrible cold. Her breathing was raspy and she coughed and sneezed throughout the time we were meditating. It was a challenge for me to not to allow her to disrupt my meditation.
