BTB Meditation 7 - Using Loving Kindness Over Doubt

This is our 7th meditation recording. In this meditation, Erik takes us through our breathing and counting process, counting from 1-9 on our outward breaths. Erik also teaches us to use loving kindness over doubt, how to be kind to yourself regardless of the outcome of the shot made.

Please feel free to alternate this meditation with the previous 6 recordings as you like until the 8th meditation is released. Thanks!

Meditation 6 - Cold Wanting & Hot Wanting

This is our 6th meditation recording. In this meditation Erik takes us through our breathing and counting process, counting from 1 to 5. He also covers "Cold Wanting & Hot Wanting", how to deal with acceptance of situations that are out of your control.

Once you have listened to this at least once, you can switch between meditations 1 to 6 as you like until the 7th meditation is released.

BTB Meditation 5 with Special Guest, Dr. Joseph Parent!

This week we welcome very special guest Dr. Parent, mental coach and author of "Zen Golf," as he guides us through our 5th meditation.  He was a guest speaker at our December 5th meeting, and remains a valued consultant as we move through this experiment together. 

Please feel free to alternate this meditation with the previous 4 recordings until the 6th meditation is released. Thanks!

Meditations 1 & 2

The second meditation is above. In this meditation, Erik takes us through our breathing and also helps us find ways to get into the present moment. 

Please continue listening to this track each day until a new track is released. You may also alternate listening to this track and track 1 (below) if you prefer.

This is the first meditation recording for our Be the Ball Experiment. In this meditation Erik talks about our breathing and also finding our favourite sensation in golf. 

Please listen to this once a day until the next recording becomes available.  You can also find this recording at betheballmovie.com/meditations

Meditation Instructions

At the beginning of each week, you will receive an email with 5 links to recorded meditations. These are your 5 meditations for the week. Each is roughly 30 minutes in length. You can stream them from our private SoundCloud page, or download them. You can also find all of the previous week's meditations on the main meditations page. Each blog style post will have 5 links per week, the same as in your email. Each blog style post will also allow you to post comments. Simply click on the title of the post, which acts as a hyperlink to that individual blog post.

Please listen to these recordings according to their label: Day 1 should be listened to today, January 25 (or tomorrow, Jan 26, if you do not wish to begin this evening); Day 2 the following day, and so on. If you miss a day, it is okay, but do try to get to it the following day so you do not fall behind. Listening to the meditations in order is crucial, because they will build on each other. 

If you struggle to find a solid 30 minute block of time one day to complete the meditation, you can break it into two 15 minute blocks for that day, though try to avoid making a habit of it, as our meditations are designed to be listened to in one chunk. 

Let's get meditating!
