But it was wonderful and I swear by the physical and emotional benefits that you can get from regular meditation practice.

    I really miss it but I don't have time for that any more unfortunately. Instead I find, as PPs have suggested, that practicing mindfulness is an incredible way to get very similar benefits as meditation. I also second reading Buddhism for Mothers about how to grab those few minutes here and there, and not becoming totally overwhelmed during those sometimes challenging child-wrangling moments.
    Thank you for the insight. I will Def check that book out, sounds wonderful ☺

    I couldn't do two weeks, especially as I've got two myself. But we did a weekend which was great, if you're in Sydney it was Nan Tien temple at Wollongong. It was done in noble silence, and rooms were single sex so there were couples that we didn't even realise were couples. We weren't very good at the noble silence though, mum said she couldn't have done it without us there but I think I would have loved it. Dinner my first night home was hard, not used to so much noise lol.
