  1. Do you practice guided meditation, or are you able to focus your thoughts without a guide? I love the glow in your photo.

  2. I do both. If I'm really scattered or stressed or can't seem to get my mind to stop talking, I might do a guided meditation. But, mostly, I do it on my own. I have this weird trick (actually modified from a guided meditation I did once), where I imagine my "monkey mind" as an actual Japanese macaque monkey swinging in the trees. I mentally coax it down with gentle thoughts and words, tempting it with a soak in the hot springs. Once it gets in the water, it relaxes and lets me go about my business. Maybe weird…but it works,

  3. And the glow…it's a candle. The lighting was terrible, and the photo didn't come out very crisp, since I was using a tablet – didn't want to get up and try to find my real camera at that moment.
