Guided Meditation With Our Unique Meditation Experience

Awareness and mindfulness are two ways to describe the process of learning about yourself and the thoughts running through your mind. The practice of guided meditation is one of the best ways to unlock this knowledge and be more present. 


Guided meditation does not require expensive equipment or long rituals. All you need is to be present and open to following some instructions in a peaceful environment.


Understanding Guided Meditation

Guided meditation is a trending form of meditation where an experienced guide or mentor leads you through mental images of places or scenarios that you find relaxing. This is a great way for beginners to try meditation and can be done in person where the mentor is physically present or via video or audio. 


As you begin to relax, the guide will gently lead you through breathing activities, imagery situations, and other mental exercises to capture your attention and manage your emotions and thoughts. This type of meditation can be done with a specific goal, such as decreasing stress, overcoming grief, or reducing the constant flow of thoughts. 


How to Get Started


Starting a guided meditation is a simple process. The time will depend on you and how long you wish to meditate and where you plan to do it. 


When you visit A Moment Away for our meditation experience, one of our helpful staff  will help you prepare, get settled, and provide instructions. You will be able to customize your session based on your goal or intended outcome. You are given an eye mask, the option to use a weighted blanket, and noise canceling headphones to listen to your meditation with, all while relaxing in a zero gravity chair! A Moment Away Spa offers several unique packages that incorporate guided meditation with a massage, facial and body treatment to nurture both your mental and physical well being. Or you can just try this soothing service on its own.


If you’re at home, prepare an area where you can lie quietly for at least 30 minutes or longer. Make the space as comfortable and relaxing as possible with a few extra pillows and the lights dimmed. You can also use a diffuser or incense to add aromatherapy. Once you are comfortable, begin your audio or video-guided meditation program.


How Does Guided Meditation Feel?

When you first begin, you may lose focus several times. But don’t worry! You will eventually start to tune out your persistent thoughts and focus on the voice of your guide. 


What you feel will be unique to you. Some people feel light, like floating on air; others may feel the movement of their bodies as they breathe. 


You will eventually enter a state of relaxation and calmness that eases your mind and soothes the body. The more you practice guided meditation, the faster you can enter this peaceful state.
