Trance Meditation with Ganesha

Posted in For Fun,Meditation by Harmony on November 30, 2009

Before starting the following video, find a quiet location and a comfortable meditation position. This meditation session is just under 10 minutes long. It is not a guided session, so you may wish to have a ‘mantra’. Focus your eyes on the video, focus your mind on your mantra, and let the sounds guide you.

If you are a beginner and want to learn how to meditate, you might want to consider a guided meditation session such as Meditation Moments.  The short sessions is easy for beginners or for those with busy schedules.
