  1. After merely eight days, I have become a diligent meditation practioner again. My definition of a diligent practioner is that besides working and social life, I am thinking and practicing the intense meditation more and more.

    At the second week's group meditation, I have noticed a huge improvement from the first week's meeting.

    Thanks to all participants.
