Since June I’ve been exploring meditations for creativity at Insight Timer App.
If you’ve been around here a while, you’ll know I’m a total believer in meditation as a core creative practice. But good guided meditations that understand the connections can be hard to find.
Insight Timer is the answer. This free app is home to more than 6000 guided meditations in 25 languages from 1,416 of the world’s best meditation teachers.
From humorous talks and compassionate listening, it offers spirituality in all flavors or a scientific approach if that’s your thing.
A poetic approach, also, if you fancy that.
All kinds of meditations for creativity — and for sleep, personal development, anxiety, healing, awareness and a thousand things. Whatever personal quality you want to develop
You’ll also find yoga, including yoga nidhra, there.
The Meditation Timer
Insight Timer App started out as just a timer, and I still use it daily for that.
Time is the only way to measure meditation. Did you do it today or didn’t you? For how long?
The app offers a choice of eight polyphonic overlays, bells and ambient sounds, so you can choose your own best way.
Inspiration Meditations For Creativity
Over the coming months, I’ll be posting a variety of inspiration meditations there.
- Inspiration Meditation: Mantra
- Inspiration Meditation: Poetry
- Inspiration Meditation: Breath
- Inspiration Meditation: Visualisation
We’re also starting a group for creatives and creativists. And in a little while I’ll be posting an interview with founders, Christopher Plower and Maddy Gerrard, here.
