Music for Meditation Archive


By Mark George, President and CEO

 

I find that at certain times of the day, even when I haven’t been “working,” I am exhausted, just from the mental and emotional effort of carrying on. Meditation can help and sometimes I use music as a way to meditate. So I thought I would occasionally recommend a piece of music just for this purpose. Find a comfortable chair or lie down, turn on a smart speaker or put in earbuds, and just try your best to listen.
