Guided Meditations

“If you can breathe, you can meditate.”

The following recordings are to be used with the instructions you receive in the eight-week MBSR participant handouts. Try and find a comfortable and quiet place with minimal distractions where you can best be present with yourself as you sharpen your awareness through these mindfulness practices. Remember there is no right or wrong way to practice, and to be kind, open, and compassionate to the thoughts, emotions, and sensations as they arise in each moment.
