Esther’s Everyday Meditation Podcast
Welcome to today’s meditation –let’s dive in!
About the Everyday Meditation Podcast
Welcome! I’m so glad you’re here. I love to sit and meditate. But over the years I’ve discovered that I don’t always love to do it alone. This practice becomes exponentially more powerful to me when I share it with others, and so I decided to share my practice with you! Thank you for joining me!**
WHAT IS MEDITATION, ANYWAY? WHAT’S IT GOOD FOR?
Meditation is focusing the mind. There are many ways to do this. The “ways” refer to the techniques used or “styles” of meditation. Different techniques and styles do seem to have different effects on the brain (says current research –a host of citations coming soon!).
It’s good for giving you a break. It’s good for calming your emotions. It’s good for quieting the chatter in your mind. It’s good for building your patience muscle. And so much more…

What’s on my Everyday Meditation Podcast
Daily guided meditation practice
This one’s 30 minutes. It’s not as tough as you may think to stay with it (in large part because of the kriya techniques we use), but you do need the full half hour. If you’re at all doubtful, make sure you grab my Everyday Meditation Comfort Guide below.
Weekly technique introduction
To start each week, I review the technique of the week in detail and give you my personal take on what it’s good for. I might guide you to test out a technique, but for the full practice, choose the daily practice episode that follows.
Please note: Meditation is not well suited to modern day multitasking (then again, neither is multitasking, *sigh*). Before turning on the podcast, step away from the heavy machinery!

Brand New to Meditation?
Let’s call out the elephant in the room. Until you’ve tried it (and, for some of us, tried it again + again), meditation can be intimidating. “Quieting your mind” sounds impossible! Why on earth would you ever try something that seems to set you up to fail?
Well, I’m here to tell you it doesn’t need to feel that way. Impossible that is. What makes it doable is a little context and a lot of comfort.
You need to feel at home– at ease enough to proclaim “Woohoo! Let’s do this!”
Think so too? Grab your favorite cozy (or power suit 😉 ) and get ready to snuggle up with my Everyday Meditation Comfort Guide!
Esther’s Everyday Meditation Comfort Guide
Yup, I put together a straight-forward guide to getting comfortable… with, in, and for meditation. Check it out so that when you decide to try the 30 minute practice, you can feel ready “to do this!”.
I’ll walk you through:
