This practice is offered at our Living Well Centre through guided meditations with one of our volunteers, Graham, and is very popular with many of our patients and their loved ones.
Below is a short guided meditation that you can do from the comfort of your own home. We hope it will offer some relaxation and calm to those who choose to take part.
Please note that you should not undertake this guided meditation if you’re driving or operating machinery.
