I'm looking for guided meditation that doesn't go on about religion or god. I respect everyone's freedom of belief, but I dont want it rammed down my throat being agnostic. So, does anyone know of any guided meditation that focus' on your inner ability to heal?

Thanks in advance

Warm wishes,

Jon Kabat-Zinn and Ian Gawler's guided meditations don't have a religious core. I'm sure there are many more, but these two first popped into my mind.
I have a Buddhist CD which, whilst of course is a religion, there is no god to worship and only others to be kind to.
Maybe this would be ok for you? Good luck, Catherine

Mindfulness by Mark Williams is secular. Based around an 8 week programme. I've found it entirely accessible. Kabat-zinn's accent I find slightly grating and distracting. Maybe it's just me :shock:

Zinn is your man. He has been bringing meditation to the masses in a format that is not only not religious, it's not pseudo-scientific, as some others are. He doesn't try to explain anything; he just tells you what works and how to do and imagine it.

I used these for over a year now. If you have pain they're excellent, but you can substitute buzzing, numbness or any other sensation

These are amazing. The only caveat is that even as an American, his New York accent took time to get used to.

Here he is on Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jon_Kabat-Zinn

Good Luck, you're on to the right stuff.

Thanks all, off to do some shopping lol
It's amazing how many people comment on Kabat-Zinn's accent. Interesting that he has become so well known and liked despite this potential barrier!

His newer stuff isn't bad, but if you get a copy of any of his old recordings, it's quite bad. It depends - each country has its own regional accents that sound annoying to the rest of the country if they are too thick.

The one I recommended really isn't bad. I just warn people because he's the guy in your head while you're meditating,lol.

But he is the best and original.
