A 20-minute Guided Mindfulness exercise, designed to help calm a busy mind at the end of the day. It is suggested that this exercise is done sitting upright or even in a seated meditation position, either way ensure your back is as straight as you can make it and your head finds its point of balance.

The objective is to follow the guidance through the entire exercise. Then in time, you will be able to take the elements that you enjoy most and progress to guide yourself, through your own 20 minutes of practice.

Guided meditations work by accessing the subconscious mind and the belief systems that are stored there. By directing your focus and attention to the breath, the body, and your innermost sensations, you are guided to relate to your being in an entirely new way – in a way, most of us have not been taught.

Guided mindfulness exercise is a powerful way to explore new modes of being and thinking and offer us tools that we can come back to again and again to help promote a more peaceful state of being. By promoting a deep sense of relaxation, guided meditations open us up quietly and compassionately to new experiences, new thought patterns, and new beliefs that have the power to change our lives.
