Jim is a meditator and meditation researcher. His career spans journalism, teaching, book writing, publishing, and insurance company president. He’s finishing a seven-year sabbatical he put himself on. He’s trying to figure out what he’s going to do at age 90 when he goes back to work in a paying job. He lives and thrives in Mason City, Iowa.
From guided imagery to imagined athletic practices, are aphantasics disadvantaged because they lack a mind’s eye?
What if instead of asking what the aphantasic brain can't do, we asked what is it built to do? Jim, a dad with a mind's eye, discovers four of his six children have aphantasia.
Many easy ways to meditate without a mind’s eye. Next time you find yourself frustrated by the inability to visualize in meditation, give some of these alternatives a try.
