This relaxing guided meditation brings gentle focus to all parts of the body. You will release physical and mental tension in this process, and become more present, calm and balanced. It is a great practice for all levels, but beginners often find it beneficial to strengthen mental focus and become more aware of their ability to calm the body. It is done seated or laying down.

Mindfulness Meditation

Mindfulness meditation is a mental training practice that involves focusing your mind on experiences, such as body sensations, emotions, and breathe in the present moment. It is simply the act of paying attention to whatever you are experiencing, as you experience it. 
By choosing to turn your attention away from the everyday chatter of the mind to what your body is doing, the mind is able to gently quiet with practice.
Mindfulness meditation can involve breathing practice, mental imagery, awareness of body and mind, and muscle and body relaxation.
