Meditation Resources

Updated: Feb 22, 2022

Thanks in part to Miv London, LRY instructor and Meditation Program Coordinator, there has never been a better time to begin a meditation practice with Laughing River Yoga.

In an effort to expand access to mindfulness and meditation practices within our studio community and beyond, Miv has helped us develop a robust list of programming and offerings for first-timers and seasoned meditators alike:

- Freely offered Morning Meditations for the Month of March

- Donation-based Weekly Meditation & Book Group, "Meditation & Conversation."

- Donation-based half-day Meditation Retreats offered 3x per year, with our next coming up on February 26th!

- Freely offered guided meditations in our Library.

See below for more freely offered online resources, courtesy of Miv!

Recommended Apps: Insight Timer - Free app that has a timer with many options for different lengths of time, chimes/bells to start and end meditation, and thousands of guided meditation that can be searched by category. Ten Percent Happier- Founded by NBC news anchor Dan Harris who wrote a book by the same name, this app provides guided instruction on meditation for beginners to experienced meditators. You can take a structured class, or listen to individual tracks. Websites to explore: is an archive of thousands of dharma talks and guided meditations from the insight tradition. Tara is one of my favorite meditation teachers, well known for teaching the practice of RAIN, a powerful meditation technique for working with difficult emotions. This program, developed by Dr. Kristin Neff, is a meditative approach to developing self-compassion. The website includes many free guided meditations, as well as links to a structured program. Incredible dharma teacher and activist, rev angel Kyodo Williams offers regular zoom meditation retreats as well as many programs for awakening and liberation. Lama Rod Owens is a co-author (along with rev angel and Jasmine Syedullah) of Radical Dharma: Talking race, love, and liberation, and has many rich meditation offerings on his website. Rachael Wooten is a psychologist and meditation teacher who offers teachings and guided meditations on Tara, the Tibetan deity of unlimited compassion. Her monthly online Tara teachings/practices are beautiful, rich with chanting and visualizations oriented towards healing on a personal/collective/global level. Finally, Miv would like to share one of the fruits of the Meditation and Conversation group. They've recently taken up a practice of sharing poetry in the session following the completion of a book. We've compiled some of the poems into a document called “Poetry for Awakening”, which we will continue to add to as we collect more poems.
