I am going for my 2nd Goenka retreat soon. My first was a few years ago so I feel I am starting new.
I have always had issues breathing through my nose due to deviated septum. I can manage somewhat but an interesting thing : On the inbreath, i feel the breath sensation inside my nose but on the outbreath its more clear on the upper lip area. Most of the time the sensation is more clear only on the right nostril since my left nostril ends up being more blocked (deviated septum like I mentioned). Now I know in the Goenka instructions, one is supposed to watch for the breath at the "tip of the nose" to enhance concentration.
I am going to ask the assistant teacher at the retreat this question but I am wondering if any experienced meditators have any answers or tips or ideas for me?
