Understanding Guided Meditation

When diving into the realm of guided meditation, we’re stepping into a space where mindfulness takes center stage. Guided meditation involves an external guide – it could be a person’s voice, music, or sounds – to lead us through the meditation process. This practice helps us focus our thoughts and cultivate awareness of the present moment.
