A Beginner’s Guide: Why You Should Practice Meditation and How To Get Started “Meditation can seem like such a lofty thing, but it doesn’t need to. Anyone can do it, and everyone can benefit. So today I’d like explore meditation; the health benefits it confers, how it may fit into an ancestral framework, and how to get started. Let’s jump right in.
Fancy pillows and various techniques aside, the crux of meditation is this: being present. Fittingly enough, that’s pretty well in keeping with one of the 10 Habits of Highly Successful Hunter-Gatherers. The modern disconnect, I’ve said, is rampant distraction. This isn’t just about smart phones and media screens everywhere. It’s about what goes on in our own minds – all the mental blah, blah, blah that taxes our brains and frays our nerves. When you consider meditation as a spiritual practice in one regard or another, being present is meant to reclaim our own “spirit” – the self or deeper humanity that exists behind the barrage of biographical happenstance, cultural identifiers and ongoing story lines. It can be a real trip to peek behind that, let alone throw the curtain aside. What you feel is something so essential and simple you can feel like you’ve come home. The experience, you could say, is the ultimate slap in the face to Facebook cultivation and all the other individualistic stylization we participate in/attempt to dodge in modern daily life. Maybe that’s why it feels so comfortably Primal.”—Mark Sisson, Mark’s Daily Apple
