This guided meditation is part of the Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction program. It is approximately 45 minutes long. For this meditation you will need some space for movement – enough to stretch out your legs and arms as needed. While most of the meditation is done while standing, you will also need enough space to sit down. It is helpful to have a mat or carpet so that you can stand comfortably.
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. This is especially true for meditations, like this one, that have movements and gentle stretching. You are advised to only do movements that are right for your body, health situation and needs. 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.
