Hey Kristin -- yes, I knew what I was getting myself into! We practiced various forms of meditation as a component of the class (we focused on Hinduism, its many forms of practice and its sects/offshoots throughout the course), then spent ten days reporting in India, two of them at ashrams. I had read about this kind of meditation and was looking forward to trying it, actually, and was floored when I reacted the way I did. A few of my colleagues really enjoyed it, though, so I hope readers won't discount it -- it just really wasn't for me! Thanks very much for reading.
