      My criteria for a good session is that at the end I feel relaxed, connected, and sometimes a little giggly. (No one else needs to feel giggly and it's not a standard criterion.) If at various points during I feel other things, that's fine: I assume that is what my brain needs to process right now. I think I mentioned earlier in this thread a chunk of time where I would sit down and cry because, well, cancer sucks and I could hold it together all day but not on the cushion. But that was fine, 'cause at the end I felt better.

        Rathgar Meditation is an ongoing practice, many sit for 20 mins and then circle walk meditation for 10 then sit for 20 mins again. When sitting thoughts will come into your head, as soon as you realize this let go of them and return to your breath. You sit and just be aware of the breath going in and out, nothing else.

          I like the answers And I have one of my own : a good meditation is one you have done (as opposed to avoided, postponed or such).. May not be the best one ever, but at least it was done

            I was enquire how You evaluate your practice.
            I know how to evaluate mine, curious about other Bees.

              I go to Yoga and arrive on my mat 1/2 an hour early, warm-up a little to do full lotus, then in that do hand balance, fish and peacock before just sitting till it's time to start. Sometimes depending who's teaching there is some music or mantra on sound device.

              At home I sit in front of my 15th floor apartment window and wait for the sunrise, simply meditate there.

              My wife and I go for silent meditative walks along the park paths or I go solo, walking meditation. Taijiquan and Yoga are also a type of meditation since the focus is breath.

              And there's the practice of mindfulness and mindful eating.

                Thankyou thinman. There is little separation between practices and your life. I love that, inspiring.
