I trust you will enjoy these guided meditations and the Starter Kits provided below. They will give you a taste of the power of mindfulness - enough perhaps that you will be motivated to establish a daily meditation practice. Or perhaps encourage you to find your own way of establishing a mindful lifestyle. A variety of Mindfulness teachings and practices offer fruitful paths to a more balanced and richly-rewarding life :-)

 

A great place to begin this self-guided exploration of mindfulness is with the Body Scan, using it daily for a week or so then trying out the other guided meditations from time to time. Relaxing Breath is a good one to use along with the Body Scan for establishing a daily practice and for helping to get a good night's sleep.

 

I wish you a rewarding journey into a more balanced, healthy and mindful lifestyle! Let me know how I can support your practice! Stay well, John
