Suitable for beginners and advanced.
‘Relaxation’ is the first in the series – ‘Compassionate Mindfulness’: a collection of deeply relaxing guided meditations, combined with simple everyday exercises. Showing how living mindfully and with self-compassion acts as a powerful antidote to modern day stress, and supports health and wellbeing generally. This album focuses on how to self-moderate the nervous system’s ‘Stress Response’, (otherwise known as fight, freeze, or flight).
Many of us are caught in a chronic state of ‘flight, freeze, or flight’ – the body’s primal automatic response to perceived danger. Different things cause the body to react in this way, such as anxiety, working too hard, over-stimulation and even over excitement. Left unaddressed for too long, this can lead to burn-out, depression or general anxiety disorders.
‘Relaxation’ shows you how to sit back from things, ground yourself and release tension in simple ways that can be easily incorporated into your day-to-day routine to break the vicious cycle of stress. Each meditation track on this album is followed by a short track suggesting how to easily incorporate what the meditation has taught you into your everyday life.

Reviews for Compassionate Mindfulness 1
"I am finding the Compassionate Mindfulness CD very useful as I struggle with grounding and relaxing. I have tried lots of meditation cds over the years but yours are the ones I really value. Your voice is clear, you don't rush, you don't have just one approach and you offer warmth and compassion." - Pauline Stephenson
"I like the way there is some music in the background, I find it very soothing. The daily awareness reminders are really helpful too. I’ve particularly liked the grounding meditation." - Lisa Middlemas
"Compassionate Mindfulness offers more gentle, in depth meditations where a single focus is developed within a slower pace. For me, this gives space to engage and overall a deeper experience. The teaching aspect and advice on using the techniques on a daily basis makes it a valuable addition to my ‘toolbox’. This is a very good investment. Thank you." - Shoena Eggington
"I find this very relaxing for the mind, body & senses. It helps me to unwind & calm down from stressful times. I really appreciate the short “Reminder” tracks. I’ve typed them out & read them from time to time. The Grounding track has some excellent suggestions, and it is all done with such a beautifully slow, calm, relaxing voice which feels very nurturing." - Pam Holland
