You Can Count on Your Breath
This meditation is an introductory exercise, appropriate for all experience levels, it compliments Module 1 of the “Unlocking Potential” program but of course, can be practiced alone.
This meditation encourages us to explore three key touch points for our mindfulness practice - our Body (B), our Emotions (E) and our Thoughts (T). It compliments Module 2 of the “Unlocking Potential” Program.
This meditation allows us to explore some of the key mindsets or attitudes we work with in mindfulness. These mindsets can be useful guideposts to support us as we embark on our own mindfulness journey. It compliments Module 3 of the “Unlocking Potential” Program.
Bringing the Mindsets to Life
This meditation will help us to explore the possibility of cultivating a sense of friendliness with ourselves and then extending this to the world around us. This meditation compliments Module 4 of the “Unlocking Potential” Program.
Mindfulness and meditation can support us to begin to listen to the whisper of our hearts by considering the following questions: Deep down, what is important to you? What sort of person do you want to be? How do you want to feel most of the time? This meditation compliments Module 5 of the “Unlocking Potential” Program.
Uncovering Our Truth
This meditation invites us to sit without one specific “anchor” for our attention and to simply observe our life as it unfolds moment by moment by moment. This meditation compliments Module 5 of the “Unlocking Potential” Program.
This meditation has no verbal guidance, simply bells at intervals to remind us to come back to the present moment, again and again and again!
