Learn how I made meditation part of my regular chronic pain management program by reading this blog post and this blog post.
MEDITATION RESOURCES for CHRONIC PAIN
Insight Meditation – This is the most popular Meditation app out there and it is FREE. My meditations are hosted on the app. It has thousands of guided meditations. The app also has a meditation bell option to just meditate silently. Whatever way you decide to meditate, the app provides stats and rewards for your meditation practice. I administer a group in this app call “Chronic Pain & Illness Meditation Group” so that people using meditation for their chronic pain can have a place to share resources and connect. If you want to join just search for the title I mentioned.
