The below is a simple introduction to vipassana meditation. This is the formal meditation I've practiced mostly for many years. Now my life is a meditation, too. Given a retreat has been imposed upon me with this illness I've learned that every moment can be a meditation. Still it's a good idea to do some formal meditation and this is a wonderful introduction. It can also serve as a nice little break for any long time meditator. Being reminded of these simple practices I find is almost always helpful.
