Is Meditation Safe?

“Meditation is a spiritual practice used to open ourselves to the true nature of reality. It’s in sorts a scientific process of introspection, set with an intention of looking at the world in a manner as objective as possible — free of judgments, free of the mind which would judge and categorize anything and everything.

Meditation is not about feeling calm and enlightened — although it can bring about these two experiences as very welcomed side-effects. But if one chooses to practice meditation, in a serious and profound manner as would be the case in a week-long Vipassana or Zen retreat, with the sole intention of relaxing as in a glorified form of vacation — then one may have a bad surprise.“
