Wanting Things Too Much: Mindfulness Meditation
This short mindfulness meditation will teach you how to transform attachments, both negative and positive, into something more healthy. Perfect for a way of looking at relationships, or your relationship with anything you feel a clingyness to, you'll learn how to observe and relax with your attachment. Instead of either clinging to the positive or negative attachments, you'll be able to mindfully feel a lightness on your attachment, a technique to take into your daily life.

Mindful Moment 1: The Body
Any time you need to calm and nourish yourself, try these 5 types of breathing that lead to Embryonic Respiration, and then finish with a simple, gentle yet potent practice called Inner Nourishment. In China, this practice has been done since the Ming Dynasty. Believed to strengthen all internal organs, it has strong affect on digestion and respiration, menstruation, fatigue and heart disease.
Qigong Meditations For Health & Vitality
Mimi offers two qigong visualisation meditations in this practice. The first is called microcosmic orbit. Microcosmic orbit works with major channels of the body, the yin meridian (ren mai) and yang meridian (du mai) on the front and back channels of the body respectively. Known as the conception and governing channels. These meridians help regulate the flow of qi to the other 12 meridians and organs of the body. Circulating good flow of energy in the main rivers means tributaries can receive the flow more effortlessly. The second is called an organ-gemstone meditation. This meditation is one to do any time you feel like you are about to get sick; 90% of the time, it will prevent a cold or sore throat from coming on.
