I have never experienced any drawbacks while in quiet time or in any meditation classes I have taught. It is a time to become re-acquainted with who you are and get focused in your life. There are many types of meditation some focus on stillness that may help you listen more to your heart and others may focus on mantras and specific goals. Either way I have found that quiet time can assist with health issues, mental challenges and even physical pain and discomfort.

Hi I love your question Don. Have you practiced meditation yet? Was there something that happened when you practiced that you were uncomfortable with? I have not found any drawbacks , quite the opposite. I would be happy to chat with you about a practice if you are open to it. Please let me know!
