    Id like to find some more online guided somatic mediations. I have used Gordons as well as Dr. Siegel s on www.mindfulness-solutions.com. Recommendations?

    There’s a great app called Insight Timer that has a lot of free, guided meditations. I’ve used a few of them and they are really good.

    I’m currently a subscriber to Calm which is beautiful and I use it daily. I’m not sure what the free version offers.

    https://www.calm.com (Calm - Meditation Techniques for Sleep and Stress Reduction)

    Daily Om also has some fascinating stuff and I’ve really enjoyed a couple of courses that combined meditation with visualisation.

    I like this channel on YouTube too, which has some lovely guided meditations:

    Just a few resources off the top of my head.

    Thank you plum! I will check these out. Are there any meditation exercices that you have come across on these sites and apps that are particularly geared to somatic meditation, as Gordon talks about it in his 21 day Recovery Program (ie feeling different parts of the body without fear and returning periodically to the breath)?

    Search for “Body Scan” meditations which are essentially the same thing as Alan’s Somatic Tracking. I first discovered how powerful it was through Yin Yoga and that remains my favourite method but I do enjoy lying down and fully yielding to a guided version. I tend to let my mood or need guide which one I choose so I don’t really have a recommendation as such. Honestly, there are so many gems on Insight Timer you can play around and find ones you like best. (Calm has some gorgeous ones but they sadly aren’t free.)

    It also has a free Daily Insight. It really is a great resource and well worth exploring.
