Mindfulness & Meditation

Welcome to our Mindfulness & Meditation Videos

Mindfulness is about being present in our lives, with an open mind and non-judgementally.

Mindfulness practice can have many benefits, including reducing stress, improving focus and wellbeing.

On this page, you will find Guided Mindfulness Meditation recordings. Please find the “Meditation Videos Safety Tips” below.

We hope you find something that inspires you and that you enjoy!

Meditation Videos Safety Tips

Each person has unique needs. Some practices may be a better fit than others and some may not be a good fit at all. We invite you to participate as much or as little as you want and to make changes that suit your needs.

For example, for all video recordings, you can open the eyes, stretch, shift attention to another area of the body, change the words, just watch, or discontinue the practice at any time. For movement meditations, you can also modify the movements and go at your own pace.

As with any awareness practice, when we are present with breathing and with our bodies, one can become more aware of what is here. This can include becoming more aware of emotions, thoughts, urges, or memories. If at any point practicing feels overwhelming to you, you can simply open your eyes, stretch, and discontinue the practice at any time. Different ways to practice or different practices may also be a better fit.

If you have questions or would like support, you can talk with a GBC counsellor. To request a meeting with a counsellor, you can write to letstalk@georgebrown.ca. There are also off-campus and urgent resources.
