How to meditate? What is meditation? Find out for yourself and learn to meditate, even if you have never tried before, with this Guided Meditation. Everything is explained for you to immediately start a full length Mindfulness of the Body, or Body Scan. Included is an introduction to good posture, how to be upright and comfortable, during meditation.
You can also continue to practise along with this video long after your first attempt, or if you have learnt the basics of meditation and would like the support of meditating 'with others' or in a more structured way.
This meditation can be used as a preparation for other Buddhist meditations, and Buddhist spiritual practice in general; or simply as a way to relax more deeply and reduce stress for those of any religious or political persuasion.
The meditation is led by Suvannavira, member of the Triratna Buddhist Order, who has been meditating for over 20 years, and teaching meditation and Buddhism in Paris and Moscow for 10. You can also watch this video in French or Russian.
