I find that when I meditate I feel short of breath for the whole day afterwards. Is this symptom likely to go away as I persevere with the practice?
—Shelley Voigt, South Africa
I have never heard of shortness of breath coming from meditation. You don’t say what you are actually doing when you meditate.
This is an extremely helpful, and deeply relaxing, technique of meditation. If you are already using this technique and having shortness of breath during meditation, please write again with more information. Meditation as we teach it should not lead to shortness of breath.
In divine friendship,
