Zen-like Zen

On prompting from D— I joined my building's weekly meditation group. 

Recently I had my first session.

I sat with 20 people in a darkened conference room and for half an hour we were guided to focus on parts of the body as we breathed with calm, acknowledging when a thought came then dismissing it to return to the focus.

I could do it—I was able to banish poisonous thoughts and I felt the benefits flow. I semi-floated out afterwards. I pinged the coord a thanks, since as the guide he was the spiritual designated driver and he took one for the rest of the room. 

So if I can, I'll go to the next one. Guided meditation has value—and it's yet another tool for Mikey's belt of CBT.
