We’ve heard of a few cases now where people discover they have aphantasia because of a meditation class. It might be worth reading Anne’s story of discovery and how the meditation instructor subtly and artfully acknowledged differences in thinking.
One strategy could be to have more instructors simply acknowledge differences in thinking (that some will see images, and others only words/thoughts) rather than finding non-visual alternatives.
That said, it came to our attention that some aphantasics would be interested in meditative YouTube videos and/or audio files that don’t focus on visualization.
Does anyone know of any non-visually-guided meditations?
