Companion Meditations for the Authority Guide to Practical Mindfulness
If you have found this page, you will have a copy of this book. I recommend that you read a chapter of the book and then listen to the associated meditation. This will help embed the learnings in your neurology, psyche and soul.
These meditations are all exactly 10 minutes long and are nicely addictive. If you are going to have one habit, 10 minutes of chillout time just for yourself each day is a habit with nothing but positive side effects.
If you have read, or listened to it, all reviews much appreciated.
Here’s some general guidelines to help you get the best from your journey.
- Ensure you have 10 uninterruptible minutes set aside
- On first listening, go through them in order
- They are best listened to on headphones
- You can listen to them at any time of the day
- You can sit upright or lie down
- It doesn’t matter if you fall asleep
- It’s not a good idea to listen to them while driving, or operating machinery
- When you have listened to all ten, take in one a day for at least ten days (in any order)
