Please click here to either listen or download some of my meditations and reflections as Podcasts. Some of them were recorded specifically as podcasts while others were recorded during actual meditation sessions held with my fellow practitioners. I do hope you will somehow get a glimpse into what some of us were experiencing during these sessions. Please do enjoy and subscribe, whether to the Podcasts or YouYube channel so that you will be notified when new recordings are added. Some of the YouTube recordings may not be available yet as Podcasts and vise-versa. The most recent meditations will be displayed on this page as YouTube audios. Thank you.
The same guided meditations and reflections are also available through the YouTube link here
One teacher I can never recommend enough is Eckhart Tolle. You would have noticed me listing a few of his books and talks under the “Recommended Reading” page of this website. His writings and speeches have very little to do with increasing your knowledge on this subject, avoiding that pitfall taken by many where meditation and alignment becomes a purely mental and intellectual exercise. This is however, for good reason called a “Practice” because it needs to be experienced through the alignment between our words, thoughts, and actions. And that is exactly what meditations are laboratories where we can practice this alignment under, what is usually a fairly controlled environment so that we can then take it out into the worlds we live, work, love and do so much more in. The difference between thinking intellectually about meditation and actually practicing meditation is as different as day and night, and perhaps a little bit like attempting to understand what the most sublime chocolate cheesecake tastes like through books and words, but without ever actually tasting it.
Tolle does indicate his sense of Being at one with his words, illustrating this wonderfully, through his own example – the way in which he lives his life, his words, which you begin to sense are in alignment with his life and his thoughts too. Here is a talk he recently gave, following the recent events pertaining to the Coronavirus. It is about 45 minutes long, but definitely worth a listen:
Dr Wayne Dyer was a Teacher in every sense of the word, from college lecturer to spiritual teacher to many millions of people around the world. Here is a beautiful compilation of his words, in no particular order but deeply soothing in the way that it seems to resonate deeply with me. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have and will continue to.
There are of course a number of excellent guided meditations out there that I would also recommend. Its difficult to recommend a single one only because we are all unique and different and there is a guided meditation out there to suit every one of us, and at different parts of our journeys.
If you find yourself constantly interrupted by the momentum of your mind (the constant chatter of the mind), Binaural beats can be very helpful. Everyone from monks to scientists are now using them to aid in their meditations. Binaural beats are quite scientific and would need to have been produced carefully in a controlled setting by those who understand the science behind them. Therefore, in order to properly benefit from them, I would recommend using any of the materials created by the team I have had personal experience (but with whom I have no professional connections) with, at Sacred Acoustics. There are number of free downloads available there and more should you wish to purchase, including guided meditations combining voices with the Binaural beats.
And then, of course, there are the guided meditations available from Jon Kabat-Zinn, the medical physician who is partially responsible for the whole Mindfulness movement in the West, having translated the Zen and Vipassana Buddhist tools into its current secular form. I cannot recommend his meditations enough.
