I love these simple guided meditations by Diane Watson of UCLA’s Mindful Awareness Research Center (MARC). A great staple of mindful meditations that I use: http://marc.ucla.edu/mindful-meditations

Every Thursday at 12:30pm, MARC holds a free, drop-in, 30-minute guided meditation session at UCLA's Hammer Museum. Each week has a different theme and usually includes introductory comments, guided meditation, silent practice time, and closing comments. Here is a link to all the archived podcasts---great for listening and practicing at home: http://marc.ucla.edu/meditation-at-the-hammer
