  • Gassho Position Guided Meditation

    Gassho Position Guided Meditation

    Ever heard about the Gassho position? The name derives from the teachings of Reiki healing teacher Dr. Usui, but despite the Reiki background it is less mysterious than you’d think. It is basically the same as the common Namaste greeting hand position. It’s this easy: you put your palms together in front of your chest. And TADA! Your […]

  • Short Talk On Mindfulness

    Short Talk On Mindfulness

    What is mindfulness? This video gives you the answer, and is made by Joelle from the Kernel of Wisdom Mindfulness YouTube Channel. I especially love how she has her own favorite mindfulness definition (and it’s not the most commonly used one from Jon Kabat-Zinn): “Mindfulness is about taking an authentic look at what’s really going on, […]

  • Chinese Flute Meditation Music

    Chinese Flute Meditation Music

    There is something magical and alluring about Chinese traditional music. As a kid growing up in Europe, Chinese music always took my mind on a journey to a far-away continent and foreign culture. Bamboo, pandas, exotic clothing, pointy hats, monks in temples and strange language. The music has a similar effect on me now, though with a little […]

  • Jazz Meditation Music

    Jazz Meditation Music

    Smooth, relaxing, soothing, and soulful… Oh, the sweet sweet jazz! For some people, there is nothing more relaxing and meditative than listening to some wonderful jazz. Turn on the stereo, sit down with a cup of coffee and a bagel, and just enjoy! And for others, jazz doesn’t really provide any relaxation. Improvisational jazz can even […]

  • The Pebble Meditation Technique

    The Pebble Meditation Technique

    Ever held a pebble in your hand? I bet you have, at least as a child. A child examines everything it comes across. Feel, taste, touch, play! So with that in mind, what better way to introduce children (and everyone else) to meditation than with the help of a pebble.. ..or 4 pebbles! That is exactly what Thich Nhat […]
