Mindfulness Meditation

Anyone can learn how to meditate. Meditation is a method of training our attention so we become more aware of how we think and feel in the moment. Through meditation, we come to realise that we are not our thoughts. Our thoughts and emotions (even the negative ones) are transient. They come and go, and we can choose to act on them or not.

BEFORE YOU START Guided Meditation


    A few points to note before moving on to the guided meditation.

  • Posture

    Meditation can be done sitting, walking, standing or lying down, as well as in the midst of activities. Generally, people practise meditation in a comfortable sitting posture. You can either sit on a chair or on a cushion on the floor, your hands resting on your knees or lap. In all sitting postures, keep your back as upright as you can to promote alertness, but try to remain at ease and not too rigid.

  • Eyes

    The eyes can either be closed, or open but softly gazing at the ground.

  • Location

    Choose an area where you will not be disturbed and can continue to return to. 

  • When to meditate

    Choose a time of day when you will be most alert and least distracted, such as the first thing in the morning or before going to bed. What is important is that you settle on a regular daily time and follow it consistently. 

  • Anchor

    In meditation we use an anchor to keep our minds from being distracted by our thoughts, stimuli, and emotions. We choose to use the breath as our anchor as it is always with us, is accessible, and we neither associate pleasant or unpleasant feelings with it. It is possible to use other anchors, such as images or a repeating word.
