A Friendly Guided Mindfulness Meditation

By on March 4, 2015

Every tried a friendly meditation?

No? Let Alison Prideaux from Omindfulness.com guide you along, and try for yourself.

At the start of this video, Alison gives a great talk about what mindfulness is, and how we should approach it.

Here is an excerpt from her short talk:

With mindfulness we see things as they are, before the judging mind comes in to make improvements or changes. And so the non-judging part of the mindfulness practice is really important because it allows us a direct experience of what’s really happening. and sometimes the expression “loving kindness” in association with mindfulness. However, a more direct translation from the Buddhist teachings is friendliness. And sometimes friendliness is easier to embrace and use than loving kindness. We can be friendly with nearly anything.

I certainly like her definition of mindfulness, and her words about adopting a friendly attitude when practicing mindfulness.

Listen for yourself, and atttend the guided meditation (and don’t forget to share your own thoughts in a comment below):
