Meditation Hacking?

  • For experimental purposes, taking nootropics / mind-altering compounds during meditation might be cool / useful. As a long-term practice, it is not really beneficial. Consider the main point / purpose of meditation and then see whether adding a compound to make it easier is actually a good idea (it's not). You can create physical changes in the brain with meditation, but use a drug and you aren't seeing the advantages in most cases.


  • I have found a great Zen meditation course on Zencast: http://www.insightmeditationcenter.org/programs/online-courses/


    It is not only an audio course, you can also sign up to work with a meditation teacher who will get on Skype for 30minutes a week to follow your progress.


    In the buddhist tradition, it is free and you can make donations as you wish.


    I have written about my experience with the course on my blog: http://www.lovelifeproject.com/tag/meditation/


     


    I use the app Lift: https://lift.do/


    to log when I meditate. It helps me to make meditation an habit.


    It is free as well


     


    I try to just sit still without using props but sometimes I am not in the mood and I use two apps to start my meditation practice:


    Headspace (free)


    Omvana who has a library of audio meditation. Some or free, some are not


     


    I have started to practice mindful eating as well recently. Does anybody do it ? Do you recommend some specific exercises or readings ?
