This is a guided meditation pulled from our Sunday meditation class on September 12th. This meditation allows us to bring a difficult challenge, question or
This is a guided meditation on gratitude. It is best listened to in the morning, to start your day with a clean slate and an intention to express appreciation for all the things in your life, from the small day-to-day enjoyments to your health, and the bigger challenges that help you grow and make you who you are.
In this episode, David explores the ‘superpower’ that is gratitude. Gratitude is supremely important for our well-being and can really turn our day around and bring a radical shift to our life. It’s very easy for us to get fixated on the things that are wrong: what we don’t have, what we need, what isn’t working, what needs fixing. In the midst of this, we can lose sight of all that we do have, everything that is going well, what is working, what doesn’t need fixing.
This is a guided meditation designed to help you unwind and relax your body ready for a good night’s sleep. By bringing awareness into the body and consciously relaxing individual areas of the body, we allow the mind to let go of rambling thoughts and come to settle in a calm, witnessing mode. This soothing meditation will help take you into a deep, restful sleep.
Inspired by a post on social media, in this episode, David talks about the elusive concept of perfection. By always striving for things to be perfect, we place a great deal of pressure on our self, others and the world around us and bring about our own disappointment and frustration with life.
This is a guided meditation on Heartful Presence with Neil Seligman. This practice helps you tune into the body with loving awareness and notice what is arising in your awareness. In this practice, we explore the energy of the heart through deep listening, focusing on body sensations, images, feelings, and thoughts.
In this episode, we are joined by Neil Seligman – International Speaker, Author, and Expert in Mindfulness, Resilience, Conscious Leadership and Corporate Wellbeing. Neil believes in bringing conscious awareness to the challenges of our world and is passionate about sharing his understanding of mindfulness and transformation through his teaching, writing, speaking, and art. Neil very kindly offered us insights from his own personal journey and shared his thoughts on the gifts of mindfulness and conscious living.
This is a guided meditation on viewing the mind as like the sky. Whenever we identify with and get carried away by our thoughts we lose
In this episode, we are joined by Barbara J Hunt – Forgiveness Specialist, Coach, Bestselling Author, and Workshop and Retreat Leader. Barbara has over 25 years of experience in the self-development space and has helped hundreds if not thousands of people bring forgiveness into their lives. Barbara was kind enough to come on and talk to us about forgiveness, getting to the heart of what it really means to forgive, and how we can push through some of the barriers we may face with it.
This is a guided meditation on turning our self-criticism into self-confidence. During this practise, we learn to acknowledge and accept the self-critical mind, detach from its story, and cultivate a healthy balance, taking equal note of our accomplishments. We then rest in the simplicity of the present moment, in which everything is okay and we are calm, healthy and happy.
In this episode, David talks about saying no to the inner self-critic. Self-criticism, low self-esteem and thoughts of being not good enough can be really debilitating and hold us back from achieving our dreams and highest aspirations. Talking from the perspective of Buddhist psychology, David talks about what leads to overly critical thoughts and beliefs and provides some ways of letting go of these thoughts and building our self-confidence.
