Complete Beginner's Guide to Meditation for the Chronic Life

Your complete guide to starting a meditation practice

The side benefits of meditation are too big to leave on the table.

Especially for those with central nervous system disorders.

This program introduces you to FOUR types of meditation so that you can decide what you enjoy the most.

Join us for this very special, relaxed series, to learn how to meditate easily with chronic pain and fatigue.

Melissa Reynolds is a CYT 200, CMT 200 with extra training in chair yoga, restorative yoga and Yoga Nidra. She is the founder of and has been supporting the fibromyalgia community with her unique blend of research, anecdotal and personal evidence for several years.

This is rest and tools that you can use for calm, rest and tension reduction, anywhere, anytime. Yourself. (Once learnt: No booking, waiting and paying for an appointment; no reliance on others; none of the side effects we are used to putting up with).

What will you need?
Essentially nothing. The first week's lesson will take you through this. But you will need a quiet place to practice and a way to sit or lie comfortably (a bed or chair will do).

How will it work? Each week, for four weeks, you will receive access to the new class. You are encouraged to set reminders so that you practice at least three times each week. Bonus points for doing each practice every day.

Week one: The easiest way to start meditating anywhere, anytime you need.
Week two: Meditating with your breath.
Week three: The most recommended type of meditation for chronic pain (body scan)
Week four: My favourite meditation style ever (Yoga Nidra).

What will you get?
Four nurturing, specially designed meditation classes that you can download and keep forever!
Educational content such as how to position yourself for meditation, where and when can you meditate, and what to do if you find it difficult.
A downloadable handout with extra information including benefits, research and more information.

In brief, what are the benefits of meditation for chronic pain and fatigue?

  • Complete rest
  • Calming the central nervous system
  • A break from stimulus
  • Focus on the body, accepting it as it is (mindfulness).
  • Not trying to nap, which can be frustrating for those who can’t.
  • For those who have trouble with orthostatic intolerance, just lying down can make you feel better.
  • A boost in energy (however temporary).
  • Improve the immune system (University Health News Daily, 2018)
  • Treat depression
  • Reduced anxiety
  • Reduce pain
