I have recently been through a bad patch of stuttering and think it has mainly been due to increased pressure at work, moving house recently and generally high stress levels.
I have been thinking about trying out some meditation techniques and was just wondering if anyone else has found this useful? I have been looking at some techiques on the internet today.
Oh yes: Meditation will help a great deal if approached in the right way. My stammer was severe for 40 years. Very severe. After a month or two of meditating in the Sonoran Desert, (Mexico), consciously regulating my breathing, I found I could speak PERFECTLY. This did not last, but did last for about six months afterwards. My speech now is 95% better than it originally was. Take a look at http://www.taomoon.co.uk. See the Buddha icon.
Read and learn...
A lot of stammering has to do with changing the habits of a lifetime, and meditation can provide a way to practice something completely new. Do you breathe? Are you aware of your breathing? If you can become aware of it, then things will start to change.

Hate to resurrect this thread...but does anyone else have meditation experiences? I am considering trying it out. Thanks!
Opher, meditation is the door to the feeling part of your brain. With practice, I was able to feel the cause of my fears, recall long lost memories of events that shaped my life, and reevaluate "bad" memories.
Begin anywhere at all. Most meditation has the basic formular for turning off the clutter in your head. This will take some time to do well, and give you practice at persistence. From there you decide what you want to do with your new awareness. This was my path to a new life.

Meditation is a way to submerge into the subconsciousness in order to find out the way stuttering works and its causes. It has helped me a lot in many ways, but I'm not done yet. There is a very good course at http://www.gnosticteachings.org/content/category/5/71/10100/

When I meditate, I usually sit in a dark, quiet place where I won't be disturbed, usually my bedroom, and especially since that is my personal space, and just sit quietly with my eyes closed. My meditation experience varies each time depending on my day to day experience and for how long I meditate. Usually anywhere from 10 - 20 minutes but sometimes a little longer.

Meditation is generally a subjective, personal experience and most often done without any external involvement, except perhaps prayer beads to count prayers. Meditation often involves invoking and cultivating a feeling or internal state, such as compassion, or attending to some focal point, etc. The term can refer to the process of reaching this state, as well as to the state itself.

The only book worth reading is "Full Catastrophe Living" by Dr Jon Kabit Zin. He is the authority on the subject of meditation and mindfulness. The book has really changed me life and formal meditation practise daily is very helpful for anybody stutterer or not.
