Julie Lusk’s Long-Awaited Mindfulness and Yoga Nidra Audios Are Here!
In other news, we’re pumped to add Julie Lusk’s two new guided meditation audio titles to our library. As many of you already know, Julie is a well-known author, guided imagery trainer, yoga instructor and stress reduction expert, whose latest titles are Guided Mindfulness Meditations: Practicing Presence & Finding Peace and Yoga Nidra: Guided Meditations for Relaxation & Renewal.
Several of you have already asked about how these differ from Traci Stein’s new mindfulness offerings – Mindfulness Meditations: Finding Peace & Perspective in the Present Moment and Mindful Meditation Mix. Great question! Mindfulness takes many forms, and there’s something for everyone in the marvelous range it covers.
Basically, Traci’s work is psychologically geared, and deploys all therapeutic nuances of her training as a psychologist and hypnotherapist, focusing brilliantly on issues of self-esteem, attitude change and motivation for new behavior. Her soothing, hypnotic pacing and poetic language reflect this approach and know-how. (Listen to an audio sample)
On the other hand, Julie’s work reflects her decades of work as a brilliant yoga teacher, with mindfulness content that focuses on body awareness, physical sensation and supreme knowledge of how to position the body. From this centered core of body awareness, she leads listeners into organic behavior and attitude change. The Yoga Nidra has its own centuries-old logic and structure that works like a charm every time. (Listen to an audio sample)
Julie’s pacing is a little faster than Traci’s, her narrative more conversational and less immersive. This will suit some people who don’t want to get too relaxed – we’ve sometimes found this preference among some of our service personnel, who enjoy the peppier pace.
In all, we’re thrilled about the variety of options we can offer you and the people you serve.
As always, feel free to call us with your questions or to get our take on your unique practice or facility.
