Re: Meditation subject for OCD & metta request

Hi cookie , I wouldn’t advise meditation for your wife’s OCD, counselling and maybe medication would be a good start , until she stabilizes . Then only if your wife agrees, take her to some talks given by teachers (not ones on the internet) on Buddhist teachings and go from there .

NZ is just one big fault line , and it never lets us forget it .

Re: Emotional Health Prior to Vipassana Retreat

Picasso , its good that you are going to contact the center before you go .Its my understanding ,that some of the goenka vipassana centers have individual mediation cells and through out the course you can have a one on one with the teacher if the need arises .
