    illness as a teacher and meditation

    hi

    I came across this site http://www.stillpointmeditation.org.uk/ ... Page=Index originally as it related to a health problem I am recovering from (ME/CFS)

    There are also some interesting article here http://www.stillpointmeditation.org.uk/ ... Page=Index about illness as a teacher which I thought some people may find intersting/useful.

    Sorry I don't know how to post the link without the full url ops:

    Any thoughts on illness as a teacher :?:

    Hi Kev,

    I have not had a chance to look at the particular practices discussed on those webpages. However, illness has been a teacher since the Buddha first set out on his search for understanding of suffering ...

    It is one of the greatest teachers, and an opportunity for Practice.

    Gassho, Jundo
