An Introduction to Guided Imagery


An Introduction to Guided Imagery

The first part of the podcast explains guided imagery, its uses and tips on how best to make use of it. The second part of the podcast offers a short imagery focused on relaxation.

Stillness Meditation

A brief meditation intended to provide a few quiet, refreshing moments during any busy and stressful day. It can be a very helpful few minutes to take a break or refocus prior to resuming the day. The spoken part of the meditation is about 5 minutes in length. The music continues for ongoing meditation. The total running time is 9-and-a-half minutes.

Meditation for Perspective and Balance

This meditative imagery is intended to help find or regain and maintain a sense of balance when you feel stressed, anxious or overly busy. The spoken meditation is just over 7 minutes long. The music continues for ongoing meditation for a total running time of about 15 minutes.

A Meditation on Breathing

This simple meditation focuses on using your breath to find calm and comfort. The spoken portion of the meditation is 7 minutes long. The music continues for a few more meditative moments. The whole experience is about 15 minutes in duration.

Releasing at Day’s End

This is a brief experience of guided imagery intended to help release any tension or stored discomfort at the end of the day, and to transition into safe, soft space for rest. The spoken portion runs just under 6 minutes. The music continues for another 25 minutes to enhance the releasing, restful sensations of the imagery.
