Begin your guided meditation now

You can begin your guided meditation right now by taking just a few minutes to listen to one of Lori's guided meditations set to a background of serene music.

It is preferable that you close your eyes, but if for some reason that doesn't work for you feel free to leave your eyes open and find a place, object, or use the picture in the background of this page to focus your attention. (Some trauma survivors may find it more relaxing to keep their eyes open.)

Helpful hints for guided meditation

Make sure you:
  • sit or lie in a comfortable position
  • leave your legs and arms unfolded and loose
  • will not be interrupted

If your mind wanders, gently bring your attention back to the words and suggestions on the recording. Don't be concerned about how often your mind might wander. The purpose of the relaxation technique is to train your mind to return to a single focus of attention.
