Angela I use the breaking through pain guided meditations from Shinzen Young. They were specifically for people living with chronic pain but anxiety and depression are definitely painful and they suited me very well.His method is based on Vipassana meditation or mindfullness. This is his website if you're interested

I first found his tapes in the library. I think everyone has to try different things and go with what is right for them. The library was a cheap way to try out different tapes without buying anything!

On my own I have used the traditional Christian centering prayer.

The tapes or methods that work best for me are the simplest. Too much clenching and relaxing of muscles and visualizing, etc aren't for me. The most important part for me is JUST DO IT (the Nike school of meditation?). Oddzilla


> I recently began to try meditation, basically because I have absolutely no concept of how to relax (and the muscle tension to show it). I bought a guided tape from the bookstore, but I'm not very fond of it. I like the guided tape concept for me to start with, though, and I was wondering if any of you could recommend ones that you like?
