Sitting Pains: A Meditation Month Discussion

Cator Shachoy

This discussion is now closed.

It's Meditation Month here at Tricycle! Are you joining us in making the commitment to sit every day of February?

Sometimes our meditation feels like it's the easiest thing in the world. An hour floats by like a second, and we're in a state of complete calm and equanimity. Other times, it's a real pain in the butt—literally. Our feet, legs, bottoms, and backs can all be the unlucky recipients of aches and pains while we sit. It's certainly distracting, and if severe, debilitating.
