Meditation soundtrack

Meditation can play a useful role for all people, especially for people coping with cancer and life threatening illness, precisely because it is fundamentally concerned with the present moment reality. It is a practice of making things real.

The disciplined practice of residing in stillness can lead, in time, to seeing new pathways. It can enable new choices for action that might not have been see prior to the practice of stillness.

Meditation: A place of peace

An hour of relaxation, stillness, meditation and visual imagery

The below four music tracks are taken from Meditation: A place of peace a CD made by Peter Mac's spiritual Care department, and makes a meditation session suitable for a beginner as well as a practiced meditator.

  • Introduction to the session. Attention to posture; attention to comfort; attention to being present to your immediate surroundings and to your physical body.

  • Two exercises. First, to provide you with a sense of being grounded and supported. Second, to relax you and to release physical tightness and tension.

  • Mindful or stillness meditation. Guidance in using the breath or an invitation to use a mantra or simple prayer. The practice of quiet mind skills to build peace within. Periods of silence with the sound of bells.

  • White light meditation. Imagery can give a profound spiritual experience; it provides a vehicle to activate one's spiritual life; it can act as a link between spirit, consciousness and matter. Seeing yourself as a body of light can help you feel clarity, joy or peace.

Note: Do not practice relaxation or meditation while driving or operating machinery.
