In nature? In a sacred place? In the comfort of your home?
How about sitting on a platform held up by a stick held by another meditating man? I’m not kidding – just saw witness this this past weekend at Piazza Novena in Rome. While we gawked at the stunt, I have to admit these two men meditated in silence and still for more than an hour…
I have to admit I am not a nature meditator, unless it’s at a beach and the lull of the waves transports me. Generally outside, I find I end up focusing more on the bugs or ground beneath me. So weird to think that I am an urban meditator, unless it’s in a video like this:
I love to meditate in Holy Places, especially in places like churches. This video however has someone commenting that we should not mix meditation and religion – ie that it is not appropriate to link meditation to a cathedral. What do you think? Is it offensive somehow to meditate in a church? (Obviously I don’t think so, but am curious what you think!)
So where is your favorite place to meditate?
