When you have experienced using guided mindfulness meditations, you may wish to progress onto doing mindfulness meditation without being guided. This is harder to do than guided meditation. One option is to guide yourself through meditations, like focusing on different body parts, or imagining a pleasant place in your mind. Alternatively you can use breathing or a word or sound. This is what this lecture covers. It gives you ideas for meditating on your breath, on a word or sound, or on a single mental image. This lecture will teach you these techniques, and give you ideas about how you can gradually develop your focus with these techniques.
