Guided Meditation by Tara Brach

Guided meditation can be a great tool for anyone new to meditation. It provides guidance and instruction from an experienced meditator or teacher.

There are a variety of guided meditations available online, in books and on apps. The best option for you will depend on your needs and preferences.

Practice a regular time and space for meditation, setting aside a quiet hour or two each day to cultivate your practice. Ideally, you can commit to this time for at least a month or more.

Be mindful of your body during meditation, noticing any tension or discomfort in your physical being. This may include sensations of pain or stiffness, as well as any resistance or fear you experience.

Breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. In this way, you are bringing in awareness to the body’s sensations and breathing out a sense of calmness or peace.

Releasing the physical sensations in your body can be challenging, but it can also be a key step in learning to meditate with discomfort. When you do, try to meet the unpleasantness with a soft and kind attention.

Use supportive strategies to enhance your meditation experience, including a soft voice, receptivity and gentle touch. You can even play music to help you focus and settle.
