Wayfinder mindfulness recordings
We have created four 6-minute meditations for you to use in your Wayfinder classes. We recommend playing these at the start of class to help your students transition into a more centered mindset and to explore Wayfinder topics experientially.
The first three meditations have been designed to accompany our "Self-Awareness", "World-Awareness" and "Purposeful Action" activities respectively while the fourth meditation has been designed to accompany our "Centering Yourself" activity more specifically. However, you should feel free to use the meditations in any way and any order that you feel would best serve your students.
In order to be purposeful navigators in our lives, we first start with ourselves. We ask, “what do I value?” “what matters to me?” “what am I grateful for?” “what traits do I want to practice?”, but we can only get to know ourselves if we’re paying close attention. In this session we’ll guide students through a simple practice in paying attention.
Being aware of the world outside of ourselves is an important part of becoming a Wayfinder. We ask, “what guides me?” “who do I go to for support?” “what needs in the world do I care about?”, but exploring these questions with integrity requires us to be deeply connected to what is around us. In this session we’ll take students through a guided meditation in deepening gratitude.
purposeful action Meditation
Feeling confident and empowered is an important part of becoming a Wayfinder. We ask, “how can I confront fear?” “how do I overcome challenges?” “how can I move through self-doubt?”, but to answer these questions truthfully, we need to explore the things that hold us back. In this meditation we’ll guide students through a simple practice in making friends with self-doubt.
CENTERING YOURSELF MEDITATION
Understanding our emotions is an important part of becoming a Wayfinder. We ask, “how can I stop losing my temper?” “how can I become happier?” “how can I cope with my anxiety?”, but before we can really investigate these questions, we first need to accept our feelings and be able to sit with them. In this meditation we’ll guide students through a simple practice in accepting emotions.
