'Relaxation' is the first guided meditation album in the Compassionate Mindfulness series by Linda Hall. It includes three deeply soothing guided meditations to promote deep relaxation and wellbeing. You will learn how mindfulness and self-compassion make a profound difference to peace of body and mind. The additional day-to-day mindfulness exercises will teach you how to relax your mind and body in simple steps that you can easily apply to everyday living.
Three guided meditations teach you how to relax the body’s autonomic nervous system with easy relaxation techniques. In today’s fast moving world, where sensory and information overload is the norm, learning how to manage the Stress Response helps you avoid physical and emotional burn-out at work.
‘Relaxation’ is the first in the series – ‘Compassionate Mindfulness’: a collection of deeply relaxing guided meditations, combined with simple everyday exercises. Showing how living mindfully and with self-compassion acts as a powerful antidote to modern day stress, and supports health and wellbeing generally. This album focuses on how to self-moderate the nervous system’s ‘Stress Response’, (otherwise known as fight, freeze, or flight).
Many of us are caught in a chronic state of ‘flight, freeze, or flight’ – the body’s primal automatic response to perceived danger. Different things cause the body to react in this way, such as anxiety, working too hard, over-stimulation and even over excitement. Left unaddressed for too long, this can lead to burn-out, depression or general anxiety disorders.
‘Relaxation’ shows you how to sit back from things, ground yourself and release tension in simple ways that can be easily incorporated into your day-to-day routine to break the vicious cycle of stress. Each meditation track on this album is followed by a short track suggesting how to easily incorporate what the meditation has taught you into your everyday life.

'Compassionate Mindfulness offers more gentle, in depth meditations where a single focus is developed within a slower pace. For me, this gives space to engage and overall a deeper experience. The teaching aspect and advice on using the techniques on a daily basis makes it a valuable addition to my ‘toolbox’. This is a very good investment. Thank you.'
'I find this very relaxing for the mind, body & senses. It helps me to unwind & calm down from stressful times. I really appreciate the short “Reminder” tracks. I’ve typed them out & read them from time to time. The Grounding track has some excellent suggestions, and it is all done with such a beautifully slow, calm, relaxing voice which feels very nurturing.'
