Introduction to the Meditations

Meditation is a natural state and research indicates that the health benefits of meditating are enormous. While many people start meditation to become more relaxed, they usually find that other areas in their life improve. In general they feel more content and more alive. When you meditate you are helping to align your body, mind and spirit … a holistic approach to overall wellbeing.


This meditation is designed to take you into a very deep state of rest. It is a full body relaxation that helps to relieve stress of all kinds. Use it often!  Make sure you are in a warm, secure place to listen to the meditation, and that you have cleared your mind and schedule of other obligations.


Rest has been created to help you let go of the cares of the day and slip into a peaceful state. You can listen to it sitting up, but it’s much better if you are lying down.


This meditation will help you to let go of stress, tensions, and worries. Find a comfortable chair, click on the meditation, and relax. You deserve it!


This meditation is designed to take you out of your thoughts and feelings, giving you a much needed break from the bustle of daily life. Take the phone off the hook, make sure you are sitting comfortably,  push play … and feel the peace.
