Free guided mindfulness downloads

Postby Isap » Thu Oct 13, 2016 12:51 pm

Mindfulness: Finding Peace in a Frantic World
Professor Mark Williams website that accompanies his books. The first link are the meditations found in his book of this name which where you practice daily but work them by changing to the next weeks meditation over 8 weeks. (there are more in the book and CBT style exercises)
Further free resource(s) from the website:

The Free Mindfulness Project:
A good mix of known names and organisations with introductions, breathing, body scans, guided imagery, etc.

Mindful Self Compassion
Downloads by a clinical psychologist who also trains others to teach. Given he is Massachusetts, he probably took his influence from MBSR as their centre is there. These also include elements of Loving-Kindness meditation and seem to have a big focus on compassion.

Mindful Meditations by UCLA
Currently free to download from iTunes. Includes breathing, body scanning including for sleep, Loving-Kindness, etc. Were created for an ADHD programme by their Director for Mindfulness Education.

The Mindful Solution
An assistant professor with a similiar background to the guy at Mindful Self-help Compassion (above) who has produced several books including use of Mindfulness in physical conditions. Breathing, body scanning, Loving-Kindness and more.

Mindful (magazine)
A magazine that has a section with links to recommended sources. (I haven't checker these so be careful if they charge)

Tara Brach
Large resource of guided meditations & recordings from retreats. One of her downloads is on The Free Mindfulness Project website (above), has a large US retreat, background in clinical psychology, etc. Some also in Spanish.

UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness
Body scans, Loving-Kindness, Wisdom, etc. Also offers Mindful Yoga and MBSR Yoga (see 2nd tab)

Sitting Togethernessj
3 medical professionals, one of which is the one from The Mindfulness Solution (above) so there is only a few different ones on here but alll along the same lines.

The Headspace app is initially free on a 10 day trial but after that there is a subscription option:

The above was plagiarized from another forum so don't thank me.

I've downloaded about half the links and it's all pretty much the same. Dependsvon what English accent you prefer.

Guided meditation goes quicker than self guided I find.

Thanks Isap, I will thank you anyway.

Im not great with the American accent, it takes me out of the moment for some reason and Im not keen on those guided meditations when they keep repeating chunks like ' Noticing, Noticing ' as that takes me out of my mindfulness.

Always appreciate some new resources.
