Collectively our mental health and well being have been strained and stressed as never before, thanks to the challenging year 2020 has been. If you can relate, maybe you’d like to have a listen to my Antidote to Anger meditation, now live on my Youtube channel: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rNGwBDytJlQ
This is a meditation to ease anger and promote mental health, self care and well being. My wish in creating this meditation and sharing it is that it will give you some peace and relaxation, a reprieve from the challenging times we’re all going through.
I wrote this meditation in Spring 2020, early on in the lock down of the Covid-19 pandemic. Feeling overwhelmed due to the enormous ways life had changed, every day was full of mixed feelings. I had to find a way to overcome the anger that would creep in, and I needed to cope with and embrace the changes and move on. I recalled the amazingly helpful guided meditations I was privileged to receive from my therapist as a young college student in the early 90’s. The techniques my lovely counselor taught me have stayed with me all this time, and so meditation is a practice I lean on often.
I am proud and delighted to note the gorgeous background music track, “The Ghost Has No Home”, by The Cocteau Twins and Harold Budd, used with permission by 4ad records. Huge thanks and gratitude!!! Their music, and this album (The Moon and the Melodies) are some of my all time favorite, so sublime and beautiful, it defies description.

Thanks for reading, and I hope the meditation is beneficial for you!
