This page offers a selection of guided meditations, book recommendations and a list of links to various Lyme Disease related web sites. The meditations and books are amongst my personal favorites. I hope they are helpful to you too.
A note on the meditations, specifically Rupert Spira’s: these meditations guide us through a visceral experience of the true Self, exploring the sensations of the body, discovering the limitlessness of who we are, dropping all the labels we use.
