Discovering Your Inner Strength

Guided Meditations

Lighthouse near Victoria BC (4/23/11)

 

You can practice with these guided meditation recordings from this website, or download them onto your portable device. It’s OK if it seems a little weird at first. To get the hang of it, you may wish to try practicing with a particular recording at the same time, every day, for a week. Once you’ve got the feel for it, you can decide whether to continue using the recordings, or instead, just guide yourself using your own inner voice. (Caution: Please do not listen to these recordings while driving or operating machinery.)

    Hi Dr Dzung Vo, Thanks for this amazing resource and website. I am really happy to see a focus for young people and mindful awareness practices designed for their needs. I tried to play some of the recordings above and they did not work. Would you please take a look. I will try again a few hours later in case there is something wrong in my connection.

      Hello, thank you for checking out this resource. I’m sorry that you’re having difficulty playing the recordings. You may have success accessing the recordings on a different operating system or browser. I am using a Mac and it works fine with Google Chrome and Safari browsers. It also works on my Windows PC with Google Chrome. Others have told me that they’ve been able to access the recordings from their mobile phones. I’ll look into this and see if there are any other potential solutions.

      If other people have experience or suggestions on this question – please let us know in the Comments section. Thanks!

    Dzung, Loved talking to you today. It was very kind of you to think of me. Your call was so meaningful to me. I love what you are doing. I always wanted teens to learn ways to handle their emotions so they could calm the inner pain. You are on a wonderful path in working with teens. They need significant males that are centered and calm I feel lucky to have had our paths cross. I look forward experiencing your book. Love to you roger

    Hi Dzung-

    Thank you for providing this wonderful website and for writing your book. I really look forward to reading it and sharing it with the principal I am doing mindfulness classes with!! Your book looks like a terrific resource for anyone working with teens and I appreciate your free, short mindfulness downloads that we can share with our students. Thank you for doing such compassionate things for teens and for the world. The universe is a brighter and happier place because of you :-)). Be well and a deep bow of gratitude is sent your way. Happy spring time!! Warmly, Mariann from the MiEN :-))
