    Beautifully written! I sat the 10-day retreat from the end of 2007 to the beginning of 2008 – nearly 5 years ago, already. I must admit, I didn’t have any real problems with the content of my thinking, but with actually maintaining the meditation posture for that period of time. In fact, I think I only managed it once in the whole period. And I found the hunger pains hard to cope with – my (pampered, middle-class) body did not like the regimen one bit! But I got through it, in the end, although I must also own up that I have never managed to maintain their recommended schedule of ‘sitting one hour, morning and evening, every day’.
