Meditation is sometimes thought of as a passive relaxation technique. And I’ll admit, those three words together rub me the wrong way. Meditation is, to me, an active, alive way of being, and that is often far from relaxing, though of course it can be. But to think of the full breadth of contemplative practice as “a technique” is doing a great disservice to the change which can occur by realizing there is no distance between you, and living this very life.
