This is the first mindfulness guided meditation in a series of three. Although this is for all levels, in this video David teaches it as a "meditation for beginners", teaching you how to meditate beginning with the first step among many meditation techniques, establishing a focused mind. This is a great first step when learning about meditation and mindfulness - very similar to vipassana meditation - and will help you establish a strong mindfulness practice.

Hi David, I really enjoy all your classe, but I find really challenging meditating… As soon as I start I feel like a little kid, I get so unquiet, I get itchy everywhere, my back gets uncomfortable, my legs hurt, feels like I have ants under me :( I’m always very busy and I really want and need to learn how to calm my body/mind but don’t know how to get over these initial challenges? Thank you!
Well, I have had a long break and have had to restart the challenge again. Great instructions and very soothing relaxing voice and manner. Thank you.
This is the second time that I have followed this video. Now I am doing the challenge - thank you for making that available. Very relaxing and good instruction.
Your soothing voice and timing were very helpful. Top score for your guidance, but I need to find a better position. I sat comfortably (at first) cross-legged on 4-5 inches of blankets. The meditation went smoothly for a while, but toward the end I got distracted by the increasingly uncomfortable stretch in my legs and an intensifying ache in my lower back.
