Mindfulness Matters

Meditate Now! (Free)

In the spirit of making mindfulness more accessible i am
posting CDs worth of my guided meditations to my website,
Exquisitemind.com

The tracks from the first CD are now available to listen to
and to download
as mp3 to your iPod. 

From the liner notes ::

This CD teaches the basic practices of mindfulness
meditation. The first track provides instructions for the breathing meditation.
These instructions last approximately 10 minutes and are followed by 30 minutes
of guided practice with reminders to come back to the breath.

The instructions
take you through all the basics for sitting meditation, including suggestions
for physical posture, and the attitude for approaching the practice. 

Collectively these comprise the seat for meditation and we come to our seat
whenever we do meditation. And this includes meditating in the four
orientations: sitting, walking, standing, and lying down. The formal breathing
meditation sets the foundation for informal awareness of breath throughout the
course of the day. Whenever we are tense or stressed, we can become mindful of
the breath and return to the present moment. 

The Body scan takes the mindful attention cultivated in the
breathing meditation and brings this to the entire body. Track 3 lasts 40
minutes and will take you on a guided tour of the body. By paying attention to
the physical sensations present in the body with a nonjudgmental and
nonreactive attention, we can become more intimate with what is happening to
us, and gain a greater sense of control of discomfort and pain.

These practices are basic but are by no means inferior.
Breathing and body scan meditations are what the Buddha did under the Bodhi
tree thousands of years ago. 

These practices can transform your life. Enjoy them by meditating now!
