When it comes to resources for practice, we recommend exploring what you personally connect to. Starting with shorter practices, or even listening to some talks, can be really useful without the pressure of longer or more formal practices RESPECTIVELY. Remember, the whole idea is that we bring this stuff into our everyday life, beyond the zafu. so, if you are new to it all, then that’s just great! We cannot perfect this stuff, it is a commitment and a way of being.
We have carefully curated a selection of short meditations that we like, to get you started. Guided Meditation for sleep by Tara brach is a wonderful guide for cultivating slowing down for rest as self-care practice. The other meditations are also short, to give you room to explore. The meditations here are, of course, a fraction of the RESOURCES available. Another great way to learn more about meditation is by using one of the many apps that are available, including Headspace and Calm,
A word of caution: Meditation is an amazing practice which can help you connect more fully to the life that is here, now. please make sure you are not using any practice for the purpose of distraction.
Find what you connect to and what works for you. If you want more recommendations, then just contact us at email@example.com and we would love to support you in your practice.
