Meditation Retreat: Reflections

I got a lot out of this experience. Here are some:
1) Found a meditation posture I could sustain relatively well
2) Found a level of focus I hadn’t had before
3) A sense of peace/serenity I’ve never felt
4) Unwound a knot in my stomach I may have had for more than 10 years
5) Discovered the voice in my head was really an ok guy—I think I’m luckier than most in this regard
6) Improved body image and self-worth (although that was already in a pretty healthy condition)
7) Accepted some areas where I need to forgive myself
8) reinforced the temporary nature of thoughts and emotions
9) increased meditation toolkit
10) retreats are rewarding, but a lot of work
