i’m rather new to meditation (have been practicing a few times a week, not very long each time), but would like to explore it. I’ve had difficulties with sleep, fatigue, anxiety, etc., and am hoping perhaps meditation will help. I came across the Vipassana website, which offers free, 10-day (intense!), silent meditation retreats. Aside from wondering if i’m physically able to do it (i’m waiting to hear back from them regarding modifications, etc.), i wonder: Is a 10-day intensive too much for a beginner? Or, once one gets into the first few days, does it become ‘normalized’, etc. I’d love to plunge right in, but want to do the right thing! Thanks for any comments.
