“I want to go for long meditation courses but have health concerns.”

Anuja’s email regarding her health during a meditation course.
Question: I have tried a lot but I cannot eat food properly during a meditation course.
Is this some kind of sanskara? What is it exactly?
Will I be able to come out of this problem soon as i want to go for long courses of  meditation.
ERIK’S REPLY: Don’t eat when you can’t and take along what you like to eat with you. Your body just craves something different than what is fed during the course. There is no sanskara here. If you are allowed to take your own food, it will help. You can always put up a sincere request. Try this once and decide this for yourself.
All the best.
