Naked Meditation: Everything You Need To Know
Ever heard of naked mediation?
It’s certainly an unorthodox practice!
But it also comes with some surprising benefits.
So in this ultimate guide to naked meditation, you’ll learn what it is, what it isn’t, and how to get the most out of meditating in the nude!
Let’s get started…

What Is Naked Meditation?
Well, it’s pretty basic:
You meditate in the nude.
When you’re meditating, you’re trying to gain a deeper insight of yourself and who you are.
To be honest, in a practical sense, there isn’t much difference between meditating normally and meditating in the nude – aside from your clothing of course.
But there’s definitely a few things to consider:
You can practice it the right way, or the wrong way – which is why we created this guide to naked meditation.
One of the main benefits of this practice is that if you lack confidence with your body image, naked meditation could help you overcome that.
Now if you struggle with this, we understand – and you don’t need to be ashamed.
In the US, statistics show that 30 million people will struggle with an eating disorder during their lifetime – that’s a shocking statistic.
So if you are body conscious, it’s better to go slow and try this for shorter periods of time until you feel comfortable with yourself.
Connecting The Mind & Body
With meditation, your breath connects you to the world.
So when you practice meditation with no clothes on, you can harness this to connect your mind and body better.
This way, there’s no unnecessary barriers separating you from the world you’re experiencing.
It can deepen your experience of meditation.
Remove Physical Restraints
Physically, naked meditation also allows you to move more freely.
During meditation, people often wear loose, baggy clothing anyway so they’re not restricted.
By practicing in the nude, you may be able to switch positions and even sit for longer periods of time.
Now compare this to wearing tight clothing during a meditation session – you may feel stiff and restricted.
Note: If you feel physically restricted, you may also feel mentally restricted too!
You might be holding things back subconsciously, stiff with doubts, frustrations, and problems.
So naked meditation may help to liberate you from these problems, helping you find a better flow whilst meditating.
Overcoming Your Inhibitions
When it comes to the thought of naked meditation, do you feel comfortable?
Maybe you’re a bit embarrassed?
Or too shy to even try it?
The truth is, these are all self-doubts.
They’re natural – but they’re still inhibitions.
And inhibitions start with the mind.
Naked meditation may help you to remove these inhibitions:
Creating a stronger state of mind where you’re no longer dragged down by negative states of embarrassment, shame or discomfort.
Feeling Comfortable In Your Own Skin
This is the beauty of naked meditation:
Is there anything more pure and free than learning how to become comfortable, confident and content in your own skin?
We’re often trying to show off with fancy clothes, the latest brands and over-priced accessories.
On average, most Americans spend more on shoes, jewellery and watches than higher education!
But have you ever considered why that is?
When people wear fancy brands, it’s often about ego.
We’re trying to impress our friends.
We’re trying to validate our own success and prove to others that we’re high value people.
And it’s a way of gaining acceptance from others.
Yet when you meditate naked, you’re stripping that ego away – which is actually something incredibly positive.
What Naked Meditation Is Not
This isn’t some carnal way to sensualize your meditation sessions.
Just like any other form of meditation, you need to approach this with an open mind.
Yes, naked meditation can help you release sensual energy and even boost your labido.
But actually, it’s about cherishing the raw human form:
