This meditation is designed to help guide you back to sleep. If you’ve woken in the middle of the night, or even shortly after falling asleep, it can be frustrating to find yourself awake once again. Often, this frustration devolves into a physiological response fueled by a flood of thoughts that wake us up even more. As we fight the fact that we’ve woken up, we create more resistance to falling back asleep. As a result, we suffer more from the mental distress we create around missing out on rest. This meditation is intended to aid you in cultivating inner quiet and physical stillness so that you may fall back asleep with less effort and greater ease.
