Listen to a Guided Meditation
Meditation 24/7 comes with a CD of 14 guided meditations and awareness exercises. Each one lasts two to seven minutes or so. The music was composed by Charles Bernstein.
You can listen to samples of all the 14 meditations here (link to findbliss.com) and buy any one or more for $1.49 each.
The heart of meditation practice is giving full attention to the motions of life. There is a whole set of skills you need to know to meditate, which can be summed up as learning how to be a good friend to yourself.
What we did was to embed these skills into the 14 meditations, so you can learn a bit at a time. The language on the meditations sounds like normal language, and you can just let it slide by. Inside the metaphors and the little exercises are the foundation skills for longer meditations.
