Audible Free Meditation Package Sneak-Peak
Diddy Meditation “Honour Yourself”
Diddy is not exactly the first person you might think of when it comes to meditation. But in 2020 practically every celebrity and their mom is a meditation teacher, and now that includes the Bad Boy For Life singer. Seems ironic that Diddy should be guiding us to inner peace, given that he was as involved in a shooting in a nightclub in 1999.
Diddy provides guided meditation in his velvety voice that guides you to relax and find inner peace. Although I would personally rather take my meditations from a renowned actual meditation teacher like Sharon Salzberg, but to each their own. If you like your meditation hip-hop enthused then hey, go nuts.
“The Perfect Swing” Bedtime Story Read by Nick Jonas
This entire guided meditation seems completely f—d up to me, but here we go. In “The Perfect Swing,” Nick Jonas guides you to sleep by telling you a bedtime story about baseball… random, no?
Jonas has been meditating for a few months after being inspired to do so by wife Priyanka Chopra (no relations to Deepak). If you find his voice soothing and happen to love baseball, this could be the perfect bedtime story for you.
