Meditation Guide



There are many wonderful books and CDs available that explore mindfulness and meditation.  Here is a list of some from my personal library for your consideration.  I often recommend Andrew Weiss’ book and the CDs by Jon Kabat-Zinn and Jack Kornfield for my clients who are new to meditation.   New devices are also now available that help facilitate relaxation with breathing prompts that promote heart rhythm coherence.  If you are interested in exploring this technology, contact Age Well Be Well for an appropriate referral.
