How Molly learned to hate meditation, then love meditation.


Hello, I'm Molly Larkin, co author of the international bestseller the witness my mother and creator of meditations on the natural world. Welcome. Before I tell you about the course, I'd like to tell you a story. Several years ago, I was going for a walk around the lake near my home. And it came upon a very interesting scene. There was a family of swans, two big adults in 10 little babies.

That's a very big family in the swamp world. And there was a big commotion going on because one of the babies had gotten stuck behind the log on the shore. And the parents were trying to encourage it to climb over but it couldn't because it was too small. So the parents took turns stepping up on the log to Turning around squatting in hopes that the baby would grab on to them and then be pulled over to the other side. Eventually, after many attempts that worked, but the interesting thing is, if they had just stopped and looked to their right, they would have seen that the baby could have swum around the log, it wasn't stuck at all. And that struck me as a perfect analogy for meditation.

When everything's seems all crazy, and you don't know what to do, stop, slow down, find some peace and answers will come. That's what meditation does. My own history with meditation had a very rocky start. Many years ago, I joined a cult, which seemed like a very good idea at the time. And we were admonished to meditate one hour every morning and when One hour every evening. That's a lot.

That's like a non swimmer jumping into the deep end of the pool. And because I'm a very active person, it was very hard for me to sit for more than five minutes. And because I'm a perfectionist, and I don't want to do anything unless I think I can do it perfectly. I hardly ever meditated at all. It was crazy. Eventually, I made my way back to meditation, by finding a technique that works for me.

That's the thing about meditation, there's not one right way to do it. There are many ways to meditate and the key is to find a technique that will be comfortable and appropriate for you. I have meditated every day since 1999. I've taught meditation throughout the United States, Europe and Australia. And I'm very passionate about it. Some of my best creative ideas come when I'm sitting in bed.

Irritation, my mind is still in there's room for new creativity to come through us. So I've studied for many years with Native American and my elders. So I've incorporated some indigenous meditation techniques in this course, to give you quite a variety. I'm confident that you will find a technique that will work for you. So let's get started.
