Guided Meditations for Stress Reduction

Summary

Mindfulness has been shown in clinical trials to be an effective way of reducing stress. It is a form of focused awareness that helps to prevent the runaway thinking that gives rise to physical and emotional hyper-arousal. The two meditations in this audiobook help us to develop this transformative quality of mindfulness and to practice acceptance of our present-moment experience in a non-judgmental way - in particular, with their emphasis is on learning to "be comfortable with discomfort". Although the meditations in this audiobook are Buddhist in origin, they can be practiced by people who follow any spiritual tradition, or none at all.
