11 Episodes

This series of guided meditations has been developed to make experiencing the benefits of mindfulness easy.

Simple in essence and scientific in nature, these guided meditations help you learn to pause and observe the highly active nature of the mind. With time and practice, you will begin to slow the steady stream of thoughts that cause much of our stress and anxiety, and drop into the experience of being; a state characterised by stillness, spaciousness, and greater clarity.
