Instinct to Meditate
Lorin will be giving a presentation on "The Instinct to Meditate," summarizing his research with meditators who are thriving in their practice, year after year. As part of his PhD research at the University of California at Irvine, Lorin conducted hundreds of two-hour interviews with meditators of all types, simply listening as they described, moment-by-moment, what they were experiencing. One finding is that no matter what the brand of meditation you practice - Zen, Vipassana, Sikh, Christian, Catholic, yoga, Buddhism, or self-taught and self-invented, meditators who blossom over the long term seem to make subtle internal adaptations so that their technique has elements of homing, exploring, communing, bonding, resting, loving, and taking nourishment – all deeply instinctive motions of life.
