Sitting meditation- body falls forward
« on: November 25, 2018, 01:41:09 AM »
It seems that when my family of 4 meditate to the stage of complete thoughtless, where the consciousness is well position at the abdominal, our upper torso( from head to lower back) will bend forward, this is during state where the breathe is very shallow, not sleeping though.

Is this becos of a weak lower back or do you think this is norm?

Have anyone achieve thoughtless stage when your back are straightened in the whole process?

Sorry i was not familiar with the pali terms for different state of mind for meditation.
