Guided meditation for all? You betcha! I started a new meditation podcast called Pretty Good Meditation.
Previously I have offered live guided meditations through Spirit of the Lake, in assorted settings at Lullabot, in a combined Yoga & Meditation class, as well as in prisons, churches, and other settings. Some people have asked about additional opportunities for guided meditation, and a podcast seems like the most accessible format for me to provide a consistent stream of guided meditations.
As much as I am motivated to offer something that helps others, I also find personal benefit from teaching meditation. I see positive results in my own personal meditation practice and I enjoy exploring the different techniques used to teach meditation.
Born from Midwestern sensibility, Pretty Good Meditation will not take itself too seriously. I intend to start by offering short, guided meditations at least once a week. I am especially interested in sharing how I sometimes integrate music and other sounds into meditation.
You can find Pretty Good Meditation on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, Pocket Casts, Castro, and elsewhere. If the podcast does not appear in your favorite podcast platform, let me know. You might also be able to subscribe with the RSS feed: https://matthewtift.com/prettygood/feed.
Meditation can be challenging, whether you are a total beginner or an experienced meditator. This podcast is intended to help, and I invite you to check it out and experience the wholesome effects of guided meditation that is, well ... pretty good.
