This guided meditation connects with sounds and distractions to help us get centered. This classical technique, called pratyahara, allows the mind and body to calm down, focus, and feel a lot better.

Sometimes, when we need to calm down, there are too many thoughts in our minds and too many distractions in our environment. This meditation connects with those sounds and distractions to help us get centered. This classical technique, called pratyahara, is often used in the yoga system as the step before meditation, but it’s a beautiful practice on its own that can allow the mind and body to calm down, focus, and feel a lot better.
