Recently, I had a listen to ​Untold: The Retreat​, a podcast by the Financial Times on the risks of meditation practice, especially practiced in retreats. It is quite a disturbing listen, but not surprising.

If you know anything about me, I am no stranger to retreats. I am also aware of the problems in such retreat environments. Lack of awareness of mental health issues, cult-like environments, and sensory deprivation are some of the many. 

In this podcast episode, I try to synthesise the downsides, dangers and risks of meditation. The practice surely carries a lot of benefits, but it is not without its risks. Check out this episode to find out more.
