If you’re in a relationship, you might be considering trying a couples meditation. Though we can’t control what our partners think, say, or how they act toward us, we can control how we relate to them.
How anyone chooses to meditate is going to vary from person to person, but a couples meditation can, for some people, prove effective in improving romantic relationships by helping to create conditions in the mind that give us the optimal chance to relate to each other in happy and healthy ways. Obviously, a lot depends on the dynamic between two people. Some couples who meditate discover a synchronicity that flows brilliantly; for others, it can prove problematic or distracting. But the beauty of meditation is that you don’t have to be in the same room to feel a sense of connectedness or togetherness — meditating at the same time but in a different room
is one way around any challenges you may experience. However you choose to do it, the purpose of a couples meditation is to focus more on the other person… and that’s how we maintain and nurture the connection, as well as a kind mind toward one another.
