The real deal is hard to find...


I see it all the time, mindfulness is wonderful, meditation is wonderful, tai chi is wonderful, yoga is wonderful...and yes! These are all wonderful for mind body and spirit but only if you do it the right way, long enough and under the instruction of a skilled practitioner!

There are too many people jumping on the bandwagon offering services, books & dvd based on promises that they cannot deliver portraying themselves as experts. Beware the false prophets who profit from ignorance! Then there are people subscribing to these practices superficially even under skilled practitioners.

Any one of these takes years to start and even longer to master under a skilled teacher. What hope does one have if there one is studying under a novice teacher, studying superficially or studying with no guide at all out of books and DVDs...

The real deal is hard to find yet if you want to save yourself some money and even more importantly time (which is not recoverable) you are better off thinking through your own motivations and doing a bit of research to find the right teacher and practice worth dedication too...
