Have you ever done meditation? Or gone on a spiritual retreat?

“During a class on east Asian studies, I took a field trip to a Buddhist monastery in the middle of a cornfield in Minnesota, for a feeding of the ghosts. It seemed so absolutely important but so completely detached from its surroundings. It was powerful and bizarre.”
“I have. It was overall a good experience.”
“I tried to meditate, but it was really hard to let my mind go blank.”
“I couldn’t get relaxed enough, but I think it’s a wonderful thing. ”
