Orienting and Grounding
This practice can be used when you are feeling overwhelmed or stressed. The practice helps you focus attention on the environment, orienting to pleasurable sights and sounds. This practice also uses imagery to help ground into the present moment.
Three Minute Breathing Space
This practice is designed to help you step out of automatic pilot, move into the present moment, and slow down so you’re able to respond more skillfully to stressful situations. The intention is to create more space in which to respond to stress instead of reacting to stress.
Awareness of Breath
This practice focuses your attention on the physical sensations of breathing. If you are new to meditation, you might start here. The intention is to practice noticing when your attention moves away from breathing to something else and then gently, kindly bring your attention back to the breath.
This practice can be done while lying down, standing, or sitting. The practice entails offering kind wishes in order to cultivate compassion for self and others.
