One's experience of meditation defines what meditation is
The Skillful Meditation Project offers an approach to Buddhist Meditation based on what people actually experience when they meditate. We call this approach Recollective Awareness Meditation, as it involves recollecting what happens in one’s meditation sittings. One can meditate in any manner one chooses in this approach or use the basic instructions suggested for beginning meditation students. As you explore this website you might find it useful to begin with the Meditation page. Here you will find articles and short audio clips on an unstructured approach to meditation, ways of recollecting one's sitting, as well as some background on this approach and how it was developed.
