Like many entrepreneurs, my journey to meditation came through suffering. While in a friend's garden, I had been going through some relationship challenges and I started to have a panic attack. The sun was shining and I was lying on the floor in the fetal position with no idea what was going on. I just wanted it to end.
When someone recommended meditation to me I can remember my mind would drop in and say things like "this is a load of woo woo rubbish."
