Meditation, mindfulness and the study of Buddhism is generally considered a safe activity, especially at the beginning levels.

Some types of meditation and study can require a willingness to use your powers of concentration in order to engage in self-study and examination. If you feel you might be uncomfortable engaging in this kind of self-examination, then we ask that you do not proceed until you feel secure and comfortable with proceeding further.

If you have a history of mental illness, then please consult with your health care provider before learning meditation. This is not to say that meditation will be harmful to you, but it’s better to be on the safe side.
