Over the next few months I’ll be offering a series of guided meditations for beginners on YouTube. Some of them are true somatic meditations—exploring breath sensations, internal bodily sensations, and noticing and releasing tension throughout the body. Others will explore ideas such as attention and awareness, happiness, and gratitude. Click the titles or the images to link to the YouTube videos. I hope you enjoy them!
