The four tapes in this series offer guided meditation exercises created to help you cope more effectively with the inevitable stresses of everyday life. In addition, the tapes present techniques and approaches that can support and increase a sense of present-day mastery and competence. Some of the tapes pose questions that invite you to connect with resources and capacities in yourself that contain fears, talents, blocks, and wishes that you need to bring into a more ongoing sense of conscious awareness. This allows you to experience greater psychological wholeness and well-being. At the same time, other meditations and exercises emphasize how to recenter yourself when you are triggered into overreactive or overwhelming responses. The tapes emphasize the innate capacity in you for developing a state of mind characterized by equanimity and a sense of curiosity, and for effectively recentering yourself when life presents you with challenges. Learning to live "mindfully"-in the present moment with full awareness-offers an opportunity for you to learn how to move through feelings, thoughts, sensations, and impulses in new ways. . .with increased internal equilibrium and resilience. This can help you discover how living mindfully brings each moment alive in a new and vibrant way. You can also connect with your optimal future self and have an opportunity to discover how you will think, feel, and respond when you have achieved the goals you seek.
