Meditation is not a means to an end. It is both the means and the end.
Meditation is a wonderful skill to learn. It can have a positive impact on stress and anxiety levels and encourage you to live more fully in the present moment. It reminds you that life is very much a journey, rather than a destination. It can also help you to discover the deeper part of yourself, being your true self that sits within your heart.
The meditation recordings here are free for you to download and practice – at home or at work – in your own time.
We recommend you find a quiet place to meditate where you won’t be disturbed. Sit upright but relaxed, with your back straight (a standard meditation pose). You can sit on a chair or the floor with your legs crossed, but be sure to have your back supported. It’s also good to keep your head level and close your eyes, to reduce the activity of the brain.
Relaxation meditations (click to download)
These meditations are breathing and body scan exercises designed to help you relax. You have the option of long and short versions. They can be used alone or to help you relax before you do the heart improvement meditations.
Heart improvement meditations (click to download)
These meditations are designed to focus on your non-physical heart, located at the centre of your chest, level with your armpits. When doing these meditations, remember to relax, touch your heart with a few fingers, and smile to your heart (you’ll see what that means when doing the meditations). We recommend you begin with the basic heart steps meditation before moving on to the heart strengthening recordings. While you can do these meditations at any time, you may benefit from a body scan or breathing meditation first.
We also recommend the work of Irman Effendi, the creator of the heart practices. He has an excellent longer heart meditation you can download below:
