  • 😌 Meditation, Mindfulness, Movement, Breathing, Relaxation, Stress Reduction -- Dr. Dean Ornish-Style

    .

    If you're ever looking to add to your repertoire, have found Dean Ornish's meditations, mindfulness, movement, breathing, relaxation, stress reduction audios & videos to be outstanding❣

    .

    A few samples:

    .

  • • 4-min. Breathing to Relax & Renew: ornish.com/zine/3-yogic-tec...

    Description: "Our breathing rate powerfully corresponds with our heart rate and temperament. By practicing conscious, slow, rhythmic breathing, we can better regulate a steady heart rate, a more serene mind and a relaxed body. . . . "

    .

    .

    • 2-min. Feeling Breathing:

    "This meditation helps you to harness the power of the breath to release stress and support the well-being of your heart. . . ."

    .

    .

    • 3-min. Breathing with the Full Body:

    "Relax and rejuvenate your entire body with this soothing breathing exercise you can do anytime you feel stressed. . . ."

    .

  • • 3-min. Alternate Nostril Breathing:

    "Practice alternate nostril breathing to restore equilibrium and feel calmer. Our two nostrils function separately via two different nerve currents, which correlate with the right and left hemispheres of our brains. When there is equilibrium between these two entities, we feel calmer, more balanced. . . ."

    .

    .

    • 3:49-min. Guided Imagery:

    "Take a few minutes each day to practice focusing your mind on healing your body with the help of guided imagery. . . ."

    .

    • 2:45-min. Insight Meditation: m.youtube.com/watch?list=PL...

    "Tap into your own inner wisdom and gain invaluable insight with the guidance of this short meditation video. . . .

    From a comfortable seated or lying down position, rest your awareness on your breath, naturally flowing in and flowing out as the muscles and the mind are relaxed,

    We all are born with an inner wisdom that serves us like an inner compass - when we slow down, catch our breath, and get still in our body, we can access this guidance within. Although it may speak quietly and thus gets drowned out in the chatter of everyday life, if you listen now, it can speak very clearly.

    Go ahead and ask yourself now…'What is most important for me to be aware of in my life right now… that I may not be paying attention to?' Now simply listen to whatever arises….

    With a keen curiosity, simply observe and explore whatever emerges, as there’s often a valuable insight available, one that can support you in not just surviving but thriving in all aspects of your life."

    .

  • Have found Dr. Dean Ornish's video/ audios ( m.youtube.com/channel/UC7ip... ) informative, & beautifully executed.

    Superb visuals. 🌺 👍

    Merely listening to the calm, soothing voice is relaxing. 😑

    Enjoy! 🙏 ☺️

    If this 'type of thing' isn't for you (isn't your 'cup of tea'), kindly by-pass/ ignore. 🙏

  • If any of you are serious about using mindfulness as a method of helping you cope with life,pain ect... Then I advise you to find a course local to you with a certified practioner, the advice and guidance from a face to face teacher is invaluable and much more personal to your own circumstances.

    It is a fantastic way of giving us tools to cope with lifes ups and downs. It has helped me to be a calmer more balanced human.😀

  • Couldn't agree with you more, gwynedd, point-for-point. 👍 👍

    Thank you kindly for sharing. 🙏 🤗

    Nothing beats face-to-face training. 👍

    If you haven't access to an in-person instructor though, perhaps Monash University's free 🆓 online course Mindfulness for Wellbeing & Peak Performance might be an acceptable alternative in meantime: futurelearn.com/courses/min...

    (The course starts February 6th from FutureLearn.)
