Meditation, is it ok too strangle one of my physcho-quack doctors for her misguided attempts to teach us Veterans "how to meditate" (in under 5 minutes)?!


I thought that "fad" (and the way she teaches it, it's just that) was long gone over a decade ago!


P.S. My Dad taught me how to meditate by the time I was 7 years old.

very sorry about your experiences sir.  Yes, of course.  It is impossible to learn meditation in five minutes.  To be honest, it really takes daily practice for about 3 years to really develop some proficiency.  If you need some of the effects of meditation, you might do better with Hatha Yoga relaxation exercises.  Those include some meditation techniques.  The book "PTSD Workbook" has some of those exercises in the book.  The book is recommended to be used only under the direct guidance of a therapist.


If you are dealing with PTSD related issues, here are a few resources that might help:

Well, my "Depression Class" is over! I'm quite glad for it was too depressing! And, now the temptation to act upon impulse in that environment has subsequently been removed.


Peace,
