Meditation is considered a key practice in many Buddhist traditions. It requires an engagement and simultaneously a disengagement of the mind and the body. It can be overwhelming to get started, but guided meditations can serve to lead us on the right meditative path.
In this installment of C.A.F.E. 229, we are honored to have Dr. Peter Lin lead a guided meditation focusing on breathing, clearing the mind, and just existing. He’ll share with us the six principles of meditation prior to starting the practice.
Join us for an episode dedicated to all those who could use a little more mindfulness in their life.
