Over the years I've tried many different meditation techniques, which has included 'guided meditation', ( Jack Kornfield being most helpful at the time) however for the last 15 odd years I've been a DIY meditator (as in no longer listening to guided meditation instruction) ...Back then I needed to be told what to do, that is, listening to the instructions helped calm down the unruly monkey mind...who otherwise if left to its own devices would have field day chattering to itself non stop...
Do you still use/have you ever used guided meditation ?
If so ...how is/was it for you ?
