As Mila rightfully points out the initial 10 day retreat is free. And 10 days is quite different from a couple of times a day. I have meditated and do yoga haphazardly (previously regularly) and found some benefit from both but not enough to do either regularly -- in fact both of them rouse my anxiety on occasion as I get thiinking about how wierd they are but that applies to most things in life -- including ADs, which are really wierd in their effects, often more so than that which they are supposed to treat.

Hence, I am considering doing a 10 day Vipassan retreat cuz it's quite different in many ways (though wierd in many ways too) and may have benefits. However hearing that others had done it and received benefit or seeing copies of studiies on the same would heighten my motivation to do so...

BTW, what type of meditation do you do & where in the world did you hear that TM is bad for Westerners? I know of some who would disagree with the latter...
