Meditation.Works Guided Meditations help those who want to “GET INTO”, and “STAY IN” meditation, do so with ease, so they can ”reset” their mind and body, and instantly benefit from the abundant and scientifically irrefutable benefits meditation has to offer. I’m Renata Duma, and aside from this NEW Meditation.Works Blog, where it's a whole new world of meditation, Meditation.Works style, I also offer my Guided Meditation .mp4’s, in 15 and 30 minute versions to both adult beginners and seasoned meditators, on a growing roster of inspirational, motivational and transformational subjects, with hundreds of Guided Meditations soon to be released for adults, children, teens and elders, on subject matters that matter to them most!

That includes an instant 40% reduction in stress and anxiety, and achieving any goal 4 times faster, with a 50% increased chance of success at maintaining that goal indefinitely! My Guided Meditations also broaden the mind and enhance the meditation experience for all levels of meditators by shedding wisdom and light on many of life’s obstacles that surprisingly are “the path”, and are meant for us to explore and ultimately overcome and learn valuable lessons from...
