Virtual Meditation Steps:

Step 1: Listen to Introduction

Step 2: Check-in- Before you meditate, take a moment to check-in with yourself. Just noticing, no need to change anything. Simply checking in...

You might notice the quality of mind right now. Is it tense, full of thoughts, foggy, constricted, etc.? Perhaps explore the sensations in the body. Tension, tightness. Keep exploring... Any places that feel neutral or pleasant like feeling feet on floor, hands, contact with floor or chair? Maybe checking in and noticing how you are feeling. Most times there is more than one feeling present. What is your experience?

Step 3: Pick a meditation to listen to:

Sounds (5 mins, 34 sec)

Rain (7 min)

Body Scan (16 min)

Step 4: Final Check-in- So now that you have completed a meditation, check in again just like we did in step 2.
