Hi friends, if you visit different forums please forgive this repeat as it's at another site.
I have a dear friend who is struggling with depression, relationship stress, unemployment, and other challenges. She's a smart, nice person and ex-Catholic. She's a little bit leery about religion. She wrote to me and said she's been referred by her therapist to practice mindfulness and meditation.
I'm posting this in the "Discovering Theravada" forum because I'd like advice as to how I could help her, as a beginner to meditation, without being overtly Buddhist about it. Though of course, I am Buddhist. But I want to be careful and not be preachy with her and it's hard for me to think of meditation outside of a Buddhist context.
Any thoughts or input?
