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 love. Click the titles or the images to link to the YouTube videos. I hope you enjoy them!
Meditation 1: Exploring the Breath
In this meditation, you’ll explore the pace and depth of your breath, sensations you feel as you breathe, and your control of your breath. This meditation may be practiced sitting up, reclined, or lying down.
Meditation 2: Attention and Awareness
In this meditation, you’ll focus your attention and explore your peripheral awareness. This meditation may be practiced sitting up, reclined, or lying down.
Meditation 3: Internal Awareness
In this meditation, you’ll become aware of the unlimited world of sensations that you can feel within your body. This meditation is instructed practiced lying down, but you may practice it sitting up or reclined back if you wish.
Meditation 4: Connecting with the Earth
In this meditation, you’ll explore the physical and energetic connection between your body and the earth. This meditation is best practiced lying down on your back with your knees bent and feet on the floor, a comfortable hip width distance apart.
Meditation 5: Releasing Tension
In this meditation, you’ll release tension that you hold throughout your body, and you’ll feel your mind relax as your body relaxes. This meditation may be practiced sitting up, reclined back, or lying down.
