Re: Meditation trouble

The only answer I can think of is to practice and practice. Try to find a more comfortable position. Nobody says meditation HAS to be in seiza. Hell, I can't even hold seiza that long. Try lying on your back and incorporating some calm instrumental music. That may help. Find what works for you.

I might also suggest Tai Chi Gung. I've practiced the meditative aspect of Tai Chi for over 4 years, and it has been a big help.

Good luck!
