Mindfulness and Relaxation Podcast

The intention behind these downloads is to introduce, educate, and expose you to some variations on how to purposefully relax or simply cope better. With practice, these exercises can be opportunities to gain some control over your response to stress and can help provide balance to the demands of life. You will find a variety of voices and techniques among the downloads, all of which promote the mind-body connection. We encourage you to practice what is useful to you and to feel free to edit and alter these practices in your own mind.
