Audio mindfulness

In this collaboration between students and staff from Murdoch University, guided audio mindfulness sessions help you to experience Boola Katitjin from a unique perspective.



A body-based mindfulness exercise involves focusing your attention on the physical sensations and movements of your body, helping you to cultivate present-moment awareness and deepen your connection with your body. This practice encourages you to observe and explore your body without judgment, allowing you to become more attuned to its needs, sensations, and overall state.


Emotion Awareness Meditation is an effective mindfulness exercise that focuses on bringing awareness to emotions and cultivating a non-judgmental and compassionate attitude towards them. It aims to enhance emotional intelligence, increase self-awareness, and foster a healthier relationship with our feelings.


Nature Connection Meditation is an environment-based mindfulness exercise that involves immersing oneself in the natural surroundings and cultivating a deep sense of connection with the environment. It aims to enhance appreciation for nature, promote relaxation, and foster a sense of interconnectedness.


Thought Observation Meditation is a mind-based mindfulness exercise that involves observing and becoming aware of the thoughts that arise in the mind without judgment or attachment. It aims to cultivate a non-reactive and non-identifying relationship with thoughts, enhancing clarity, and reducing mental chatter.


Persona Reflection Meditation is a unique mindfulness exercise that involves exploring and reflecting upon different aspects of our personality or the roles we play in life. It aims to deepen self-awareness, promote self-acceptance, and enhance understanding of the masks we wear in different contexts.
