Disassociation, Depression, and Meditation - 14jan23
Disassociation can be frightening, and dangerous. Before sharing a contemplative solution, I would be remiss if I did not remind you that if you feel that you struggle with depression the PCRM website offers a FREE service helping you to find an M.D. who practices Psychiatry through the lens of Whole-food veganism.
Disassociation is antithetical to the Buddha’s path for without mindfulness (vulnerable and visceral) there can be no enlightenment. If you feel prone to disassociation might I recommend the first through fourth Jhanas (or levels) of meditation?
The trick to accessing them easily and reliably is as follows: with each IN-breath practice mindfulness by silently reciting “Feeling this…”. With each OUT-breath practice meditation by mentally reciting “relaxing!” Practice every twelve hours that you too could meditate like a Jedi.
