Weekly meditation practices offered with an "everyday" attitude. I share new episodes on Fridays: a meditation practice and an accompanying "how to" with some "what and why" context that's useful for first-time and regular listeners alike. Once a month I dig a little deeper into that context. Extended show notes at https://esthermpalmer.com/meditation.
