Fourteen Breaths: Grounding Meditation for Anxiety, Stress, and Worry

What a time this is for all of us. My thoughts and prayers are with those with COVID-19 and the courageous loved ones and medical staff taking care of them.

In these anxious times we need ways to come back to center, as the stress and uncertainty can lead to being wound up, scattered, out of our bodies and stuck in our minds. So this week I have a simple centering practice for you, called Fourteen Breaths.

This meditation actually comes from a new course I’ve created called Balance: Mindfulness-Centered Cognitive Behavioral Therapy for Anxiety, Stress, & Worry. This is a paid 4-week course with one lesson per week, but it’s available to all regardless of financial means.

Just pay what you can afford. Whatever you pay will help me be able to keep devoting time to making this kind of content. And if you can’t pay anything, devoting time and energy to learning effective ways to manage anxiety is a gift you’ll be giving not only to yourself but to everyone you interact with.

So please, share this course with someone who could use it, and let them know it’s available to all.
