Guided Audio Files to Practice Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction

Participants in the MBSR Program receive a set of CDs containing guided mindfulness practices. In addition to those basic CDs, the UC San Diego Center for Mindfulness has prepared a number of other, shorter practices that are available here in MP3 format. Please feel free to download and/or share these guided practices.

To download one of the files, please right click on the title and select "Save Target As" from the popup selection. This will then prompt you to select a location on your desktop to save the file to.

Please note: These MP3 files are rather large. If you do not have a broadband internet connection, you may not want to download them.
