Practicalities

Prepare:

  • Find a time and a place where you can be quiet and free from distractions.
  • Ensure your phone/mobile device is set to an option were it will not disturb you (e.g. ‘airplane mode’ or ‘off’!)
  • If there is a handout with the meditation you have selected, print it out.
  • If there is an optional song to listen to at the end of the meditation, and you would like to hear it, ensure that you have access to it.*

Play:

  • Sit in a comfortable position.
  • Press play and enter into the meditation.
  • If your mind wanders you may find it helpful to look at the photograph that goes with the meditation that you have selected.

Pause:

  • When the meditation ends you may like to listen to the optional song, if one is suggested.
  • Before you return to your activities, take a few moments to reflect on your experience of the meditation and to maybe record, in a notebook or journal, any words or pictures or verses that have come to you during this time.
  • Finally take a moment or two to be thankful for what you have received/experienced through this meditation.
