I’m reading Neil Young’s biography at the moment ‘Waging Heavy Peace’

I’m almost at the end of the book and was struck by these sentences:

“Where are we headed with this? Beats the hell outa lookin’ back that’s for sure. I’m not sure what’s real anymore, I can tell you that. The straighter I am, the more alert I am, the less I know myself and the harder it is to recognise myself. I need a little grounding in something and I’m looking for it everywhere.

Cravings. Yes, I have ‘em. And they’re not insignificant, but when I imagine where that takes me it scares the shit out of me.”

Look, I’m not going to be presumptuous and assume that meditation is the magic bullet for him but it sure crossed my mind that it could be a profound experience for this genius, song writing troubadour ……

Meditation offers us an incredibly powerful tool to integrate and understand ourselves …

Hope you can join us
