Part 9 - Guidance For Interviews

All meditators report daily to the meditation teacher. They report on what they have noted and experienced during that day"s practice. The teacher will suggest any corrections, give further instructions and try to inspire the meditator onto further progress.

During interviews try to describe:

  • What was noticed of the rising and falling movement
  • Feelings/sensation
  • Imagination/ideas
  • Mindfulness of daily activities.

Describe each of these in detail. Try to be concise and to the point.

During the interview do not pause to wait for remarks from the teacher. Only after you have reported all your experiences will any remarks be made.

Please listen carefully to all the instructions from the teacher and follow them diligently. If there is ant doubt, please ask the teacher.

When asked a question, answer it directly. Please do not speak about something else.

Report all experiences even if they seem unimportant to you.

Many meditators find that making short written notes immediately after each meditation is helpful, but one should not make it a point to attempt to remember while meditating. This will disturb concentration.
