Guided Meditation

This is one of the forms of meditation we use.

What you should do in the guided meditation.

Listen and concentrate. A guided meditation is when your imagination is led on a journey with the purpose of achieving healing and realizations through purposeful contemplation and reflection.  The idea is to let go of any thought you may have and allow your subconscious mind to follow the words that are spoken.

To give an example, many (but not all) of the guided meditations start with:

“Breathing in, I know I am breathing in.

“Breathing out, I know I am breathing out”



Try and be aware of only your breath, but don’t feel you need to repeat “in” and “out” all the way through. If you find you are truly focussed on your breath, that is enough. And don’t feel disheartened if you keep finding that you have become distracted: as soon as you know you have been distracted and have come back to the breath – you are doing the practice correctly!

After a few minutes the facilitator will introduce a new pair of phrases to bring to mind and invite the bell to sound again. This will occur four or five times until the facilitator finally invites the bell without offering new phrases. This signifies the end of the meditation.
