Pia has been coming to our meditation class in Korea town for about 2 months. I haven't asked her if she sees any benefits or changes in herself until the last week. After last Saturday class, she told me that she can push out her negative thoughts away a lot faster so that she can focus on what she tries to achieve.
She generously agreed to share her experience while she was still sitting in half lotus. She feels difficulties and discomfort in her sitting due to her limited flexibility but her hard work is really paying off.
