Meditation Meet-up

April 9, 2019

Meditation is a popular technique for relaxation and stress relief that can significantly increase your ability to concentrate and focus. For the next twenty minutes focus on clarity and ease with this guided meditation practice. Guided meditation opens us up to the opportunity to simply be. We will begin with a guided breath exercise, “box breathing” and continue through a visualization exercise that will lead us into our meditation practice.

Find a comfortable seat somewhere you will not be uninterrupted and let’s begin.

Push Play!

To be eligible for the raffle, you must leave us a comment below. Describe what feelings came up as you went through the meditation. Did you feel calm, did you feel a sense of peace?  In what areas do you think a regular meditation practice could benefit you and your life?

    I liked the information about the controlled breathing. Many times, when I am working under a short deadline, I find I only been breathing shallowly during long stretches of time and my shoulders are up in my ears. I will apply this lesson to the targeted stressful assignment I am about to do now. Thanks

    This was very relaxing. It is a good routine to develop.

    This was very relaxing and I think this would be very good to help with the stress at the end of the day so I can sleep better with a clear mind. I like how it relaxed by body and I did not have to think about other things for a while. I think I will try to make this a part of my night before going to sleep.

    At the beginning of the audio you instruct, “.. breathe in through the belly.. then the diaphragm.. then the chest..” and then to exhale in reverse order. Would you please explain the mechanics of breathing through the belly and diaphragm? The entire time I tried to do this I felt a headache in the occipital. What is the aim of breathing diaphragmatically? How do I know if I am doing it right?

      Hi Andrea! The purpose is to simply retrain the body to breathe deeply. Most of us are shallow chest breathers. Having said that, if it makes you have a headache or bothers you.. just keep your breath as natural as possible. (this is actually how I practice it too) Hope that helps!

    This just what I needed to end my work day. It was such a nice relaxing, soothing way to clear my mind. I will definitely start doing some meditation.

    I felt like this was a good way to unwind during the day at work and most important at night at bedtime. I would like to take a class on meditation to know if I am doing it correctly. I still have trouble keeping my thoughts from wondering and letting them go completely.

    Good stuff. Lately I have relied on meditation a lot more dealing with some major injuries. It has helped me to get more centered and relax to work through the pain.

    Thanks.
