Learn how to meditate


Meditating is central to practising mindfulness and we'd like to offer you some free MP3 guided meditations of the core mindfulness practices. It can be helpful to listen to someone guide you when learning how to meditate, especially if you are struggling with intrusive thoughts or feeling particularly emotional. They vary in length and include short meditations of just a few minutes, plus 10 and 20 minute meditations. 

Our guided meditations include

- Breathing exercises

- Meditations for relaxation

- Compassion practices

- Morning meditation

- Meditations for sleep difficulties

Mindfulness techniques for parents and children can be found in our Families page and in several of our Mindful Surrey blogs.


You can also find links to meditations from Jon Kabat Zinn, Mark Williams and Tara Brach.

Wellbeing Poems

We like to use poetry as part of our classes and retreat days. People often ask for copies of wellbeing poems, especially the self-compassion poetry, so we've included some of the most popular ones, such as the 'She Let Go' poem. Let us know of any favourite poem so we can add it to our collection, particularly if it has a theme of compassion.

Personalised guided meditations


We can record individual meditations specifically for you as an MP3, focusing on any particular issue, and we can also do these for children. These could be a ten minute meditation, or a longer compassion practice or meditation to help with sleep difficulties. Maybe with a wellbeing poem or favourite music in the background for a very special gift!
