The third class follows the same structure as the previous classes. In this chapter, as with the others, there is a script for the opening short meditation. This is followed by typical student comments from check-in. The mindfulness skill taught in this class is guided imagery. The skill is introduced, and then there is a script developed by the Center for Mind–Body Medicine. The final guided meditation, also scripted, focuses on working with thoughts and learning how to label them. There are closing comments, and frequently asked questions are at the end. The questions and answers encompass the experience of meditation, the gratitude part of their meditation log, use of the gatha, anxiety about meditation, and difficulties developing a regular meditation practice.
