An Introduction and Overview of Sitting Practice

Meditation is perhaps one of the simplest activities we can do—it is basically just taking our seat on this earth and paying attention to our breath. And yet, there are many misconceptions about the practice that can get in our way when we’re first starting out. In this lesson, we’ll review what meditation is—and what it is not. Susan will also give you practical advice for how to set up your home practice.

This lesson will help you to: 

  • Develop a personal understanding of what meditation is and is not
  • Learn how to practice shamatha, or calm-abiding meditation
  • Establish a home meditation practice
