Welcome to the Introduction to Meditation!
This course is perfect for anyone who is interested in learning how to meditate. It is a simple, easy to follow, 5-day course that will help you develop your own personal meditation practice.
Throughout this series, I’m going to introduce you to the purpose and benefits of meditation, while helping you discover your own style. Each meditation we’ll cover something new before I guide you to a state of calmness, heightened awareness and energised relaxation through breathing and mindfulness exercises.
The point of this series is to help you discover meditation and learn what it means to you. Meditation is different for everyone. I’m going to help you understand how you can make meditation work specifically for you.
The first thing I want you to do today is let go of any preconceptions you have of meditation. Let go of any negative or positive connotations. Release any scepticism and any expectations. Let’s get back to the basics. Meditation is not teaching yourself not to think, nor is it blocking out your thoughts, or sitting still for hours. Meditation is not something you are good at or bad at. Meditation is a skill. It takes practice. It is a process. Some days will be better than others. But every effort you make to build your meditation practice will bring you closer to understanding yourself, calming your mind, and learning to love and trust yourself. You are going to redesign your mental roadmap - rewiring any destructive subconscious thought processes and replacing them with moments of stillness.
I hope you enjoy this guided meditation and that it helps you relax, brings you peace, and allows you to get the most out of your day.
