If you're having issues with the player:

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.

Equipment: Blankets
Style: Guided Meditation, Yoga for Anxiety/Stress

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.

same for me too II tried to change my position without disturbing the meditation, with closed eyes.

A wonderful tutorial/intro to focusing/mindfulness through meditation. David is wonderful how he explains mindfulness and meditation. While meditating, he is so helpful with bringing your thoughts back to the meditation. I highly recommend this practice and you can do it over and over again.

Hi David, I really enjoy your meditations and bought them quite some time ago. However it seems the first and second have switched places which makes you tell me to expand my mind first and then concentrate... No big deal as I view acceptance of the order as a challenge, but I figured you might want to know. If there is a chance of altering the order I am prepared to purchase the audios again. So much for acceptance, haha... Namaste

Thank you! Hmmmm... that sounds curious. I'm unclear what has been switched - is it the audio downloads or the videos on the website?

It is the audio downloads to Bandcamp. Unfortunately the first is about expanding the mind instead of focus which was a bit confusing at first... All the best, Annalena

Thank you, Annalena. We have fixed the issue with the audio downloads.
All the best,
