This guided meditation invites you to pay attention to the breath, sensations in the body, sounds in the environment and thoughts and feelings as they arise. It includes extensive guidance throughout and is a good fit for beginners or those who value having guidance throughout their practice. If you prefer a guided meditation with more limited guidance, you may like this one. The meditation is designed to be done while seated in a chair or on a cushion, but can be adapted to the lying down position if that is necessary.
This meditation is offered as part of my Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction course. If you are interested in learning more about the MBSR course, please get in touch. My course schedule is available here.
A little reminder – anyone can meditate, but sometimes people find they become uncomfortable in meditation. Sometimes these discomforts are worth sitting through; other times they’re a reminder that maybe it’s best to do something else. Only you can make that decision for yourself. If at any point during the meditation you feel it’s not for you – just stop. No judgment, nice and easy.
