Free Meditation Videos
These short video meditations, approximately 3-5 minutes in length, can be used throughout your day whenever you would like to: practice mindfulness by bringing your awareness into the present moment; practice taking a few moments to pause, interrupt the stress response and “reset” your nervous system; and practice turning on your relaxation response to help promote greater ease and calmness (see the descriptions of each audio below). They may be used individually based on your needs, or collectively at different points throughout your day and week to provide a set of skills to help you navigate day-to-day stress and cultivate greater resiliency and well-being.
Note that all of these meditations are also available in audio form for those who prefer to close their eyes or who may find the images distracting to their meditation. The visual component was created because some people may not be comfortable closing their eyes and/or may be in a setting in which it feels awkward to do so (e.g., at work, when they would like to take a short relaxation break). Also, some people may find that the images enhance their experience. Feel free to choose what is best for you. There are several longer meditations that are only available in audio form. All of these meditations are appropriate for those who are new to meditation, as well as those who are experienced with meditation. They are designed for adults of all ages, as well as teenagers. There are also several meditations available for children, one in video form and one in audio form only.
