In recent years, numerous scientific studies have shown the benefits of meditation, including slower aging of the brain, increased happiness, and strengthened immune response. But how are you going to benefit if the idea of finding 30 to 40 minutes to meditation is itself stressful!
Short "power meditations" such as these -- between three and nine minutes in length -- are ideal for busy people. Now, meditation can be a part of everyone's life! The track list is as follows:
- Grounding the Mind (8:17)
- Opening the Mind (8:00)
- Breathing In, Breathing Out (8:06)
- Interconnectedness (9:09)
- Protected by Light (8:03)
- Healing Light Meditation (7:52)
- Being in the Moment (8:02)
- Meeting Pain with Compassion (7:37)
- Three-Minute Breathing Space (3:08)
Each practice teaches a specific and powerful technique for quickly transforming the mind, encouraging the rapid development of calmness, spaciousness, and relaxation. These meditation techniques are tools for living: attitudes and skills that can be used throughout the day in any activity you're involved in, allowing you to bring more mindfulness and creativity into your daily life.
