I've tried several meditation apps and Headspace is my favorite. I have been using it regularly for about 4 years.
Simple instructions help you build a confidence in your ability to meditate and there are great sequences that help you address all kinds of issues from stress to relationships, to preparing for a competition.
Take the ten-day challenge for free. Just ten minutes a day for 10 days.
In-Person Meditation Support
The best way to learn about meditation is with the support of a teacher. If you are in the Cincinnati area the Cincinnati Zen Center offers meditation instruction and weekly opportunities to practice with a group.
Tai Chi Videos
This video includes the basic tai chi warm up and step by step instruction for Tai Chi for Arthritis movements. This video will remind you of the movements we've done in class and give you many new insights about them as you build new layers in your tai chi practice. This box includes 2 DVDs. The first includes the "core forms" covered in first 6-week class, and the second includes the rest of the sequence through push the mountain covered in the second 6 weeks
Seated Tai Chi Video
This is a great video if you prefer to do seated tai chi or if you want to get more out of the seated tai chi movements we do in class. This is a newer video than Tai Chi for Arthritis (above) and shows the instructor mirroring the movements. This makes it easier to follow.
My favorite tai chi music can be ordered on CD, downloaded, or listened to streaming on Amazon or Spotify. The two cd's that I often use have very similar names. The first is more flowing, the second more rhythmic. I've been playing the second by the Blue Cliff Ensemble most of the time recently.
This gentle flute, piano and string music always makes me feel relaxed and ready for tai chi movement.
