ZfEL Ep. 8: How to Create a Home Meditation Practice

ZfEL 8: How to Create a Home Meditation Practice

This is meditation week on the ZfEL podcast. Today I cover everything you need to know to create your home meditation practice including the 5 steps to making meditation a daily habit and the 5 major resources you should utilize to do so.

Meditation is the foundation of a strong daily mindfulness practice and it's the first of the 7 keys I covered in last week's episode How to Make Mindfulness a Way of Life for that very reason, so I'm excited to cover it this week on the podcast.

To go along with episode #8, episode #9 and this week's guided meditation (if you haven't heard about the second weekly ZfEL segment yet, read here) is zazen, or the Zen practice of sitting meditation (mindfulness meditation). My hope is that this week serves you and others as a complete audio resource for beginning your home meditation practice.

Thank you for listening & let me know what you think. :)
