#377. A More Relaxed Way to Meditate | Alexis Santos
Ten Percent Happier with Dan Harris
Transcript

A common problem among type-A people, is trying to win at meditation. But the practice doesn’t work like that.  If you over-effort, if you try to make something happen, it’s pretty much guaranteed not to happen. What is guaranteed is that you will suffer. Meditation is like a video game where you can’t move forward if you want to move forward too badly. 

In this episode, our guest is Alexis Santos, who has been practicing meditation for twenty years and was a student of a highly influential Burmese monk by the name of Sayadaw U Tejaniya. Alexis is also a core teacher in the Ten Percent Happier app and the lead teacher of our On the Go course.
