Meditation Practices

Practice mindfulness daily with these guided meditation practices.

Meditation is a practice that focuses on mind and body integration. There is a common misconception that the mind needs to be still or completely devoid of thought during a meditation practice. The reality is that our minds are designed to think. It’s okay for thoughts to be rising to your consciousness during a meditation practice. It’s important to bring awareness to these thoughts; to make our thoughts conscious and visible so that way we can hear the inner dialogue. This helps us become aware of both helpful and unhelpful thought patterns. Our internal dialogue (the words we say to ourselves) can impact our physical and emotional health. So, awareness is important. 

The goal of meditation is to become an observer of thoughts, sensations, feelings and emotions experienced within the body. If you find that certain thoughts, sensations or emotions feel too much, you can bring your awareness back to your breath, a safe sensation in your body, you can explore self-touch (placing your hand on your heart, self-hug, mudra), repeat a mantra, tune into your senses, or focus on an object in your space. These strategies are useful as they can help anchor you to the present moment. This can help quiet racing thoughts, and can help cultivate feelings of safety in your body. 

I invite you to join the following beginner-friendly guided meditation practices. In these practices, we explore the following tools and strategies: affirmations, mantras, pranayama practices (breathwork), intention setting, visualization techniques, body scans, progressive muscle relaxation technique, as well as self-touch.

Reduce stress, manage anxiety, improve memory and focus, sleep better, enhance creativity, and improve your emotional resiliency with these free guided meditation practices.
