Why don’t more people meditate?


After all, meditation is so readily accessible in the U.S. now and has emerged in a variety of forms. The number of meditation offerings has increased exponentially… apps that can be downloaded, local meditation classes that you can attend, teachers who stand ready and willing to help you meditate. Meditation can change your life, they tell you. It can facilitate emotional healing and help resolve your health issues. It will teach you how to be mindful.


Yet, a lot of people (most people) don’t meditate. Why not? And why do some of those who do (or at least have) stop meditating?
