Guided Meditation Using a Personal Mantra


A personal mantra—a mantra uniquely attuned to our individual nature and needs, received from a qualified teacher—unlocks a rich, lifelong meditation practice. But how do we make best use of this mantra, and where does it fit into our practice? For students who already have a personal mantra, Bill Ryan guides a complete meditation session, beginning with a relaxation and culminating in a focus on the mantra. Find a comfortable seat and allow pure consciousness to reveal itself.
