Below is a 20-minute guided mindfulness meditation where I walk you through R.A.I.N, a game-changing mindfulness technique that will help you deal with difficult emotions when they arise in a skillful way. This mindfulness technique has absolutely changed my life. Got another rejection? Creatively blocked? Freaked out about the publishing industry? If R.A.I.N is in your back pocket, you’ll be able to navigate the writer’s life much more easily.
I talk a bit at the beginning of the meditation, walking you through what R.A.I.N is. The actual meditation begins at the 7-minute mark. Once you learn this technique, you’re good to go – use this on the spot and build this mindfulness muscle.
For more on R.A.I.N., be sure to check out Episode 2 of the Mindfulness for Writers podcast, as well as this blog post I wrote on the MFW blog .
Breathe. Write. Repeat.
