“The dreaded clear-your-head myth is responsible for untold numbers of aborted meditation careers.”

–Dan Harris, Meditation for Fidgety Skeptics

I just thought of it as “That thing where I focus on the sounds all around me until I can map my place in the world by sound.” I was aware this had a mindfulness component, but it was just something I started doing in my kayak one day. It helped me to feel some peace when my grandma was in her final days.
