A: Queasy feelings during or after meditation are rare, but do happen
sometimes. Usually it will pass after a few sessions. If it doesn't, then
maybe back off on meditation time a bit until comfort returns. Once you have

a simple application of self-pacing.
Of course, it could be a bug in your body too, in which case it will pass as
your immune system deals with it. The procedure in sitting practices will be
the same. We don't force our practices when there is excessive discomfort.
I wish you all success on your chosen spiritual path.
The guru is in you.
