Online Guided Meditations

If you are new to meditation we recommend you start with one of our free 20-minute guided Mindfullness Meditations. These sessions are suitable for absolute beginners and experienced meditators alike. They allow you to slow down and give our often busy minds a rest so that students can become more mindful, connected and self aware.
