I was teaching a meditation class Last weekwhen the craziest thing happened. It is currently chilly outside so both of us had a space oil furnace running inside of the studio to keep us comfortable. We had been resting in meditation with our eyeah closed for about fifteen minutes as well as I could hear the space oil furnace running. The next thing I know, I begin to aroma smoke as well as abruptly peak our eyeah open. I saw the space oil furnace from across the room beaming with smoke as well as flames coming from the electrical outlet, and careful not to cause a panic in the class, I stood up as well as excused myself from the meditation to tend to the space heater. I didn’t know if I should ask the class to leave the studio while I ensured the oil furnace was not a danger or threat, so I abruptly assessed the situation to determine. I turned off the space oil furnace as well as grabbed a thick towel to help me unplug the oil furnace from the outlet as safely as well as abruptly as possible. I opened up the window so the smoke could begin to leave the room as well as used a fan to cool off the space heater. By this point, people in the class were resting as well as approaching me to help tend to the situation. Because everyone was feeling calm as well as peaceful from the meditation, both of us were all collectively coming up with solutions without freaking out or panicking. It was a bit scary to deal with at the moment, but it certainly showed me how powerful meditation can be on the amygdala.
