I've already posted about the work of Dr. Kristin Neff, but if you didn't come across that post, or even if you did, but somehow didn't land on her amazing recorded practices page, I had to include it here!
Especially when exploring new ideas and practices, it can be so nice to be led. You can listen to these guided practices online or download them and add them to your favorite player for access anytime.
This page also offers more contemplative exercises that include writing and inquiry (some recorded, some with written instructions). I highly recommend!
