support for chronic illness and lyme disease

Welcome to Red Kite Meditations! I'm Shona Curley.

What a journey chronic illness can be. It demands that we slow down, listen to our bodies, and create a lifestyle that allows for relaxation and repair. I’m here to help you, using meditation, gentle exercise and bodywork tools. You don’t have to be a “good meditator” or a yoga girl to use these tools for healing. You can be a total beginner.

There is an album of guided meditations on the Shop page. The tracks soothe anxiety and insomnia, and help balance systems crucial to healing such as liver detox or lymphatic flow. You can listen to samples of each, and pick the ones that are right for you. The Blog offers more healing tools, and gentle exercises to ease pain. I also teach private Sessions at my studio in San Francisco, Hasti Pilates.

I’ve had neurological Lyme disease since 2014. Parts of chronic illness have been awful, but learning to care for myself well has been invaluable, and I wouldn’t trade it. You CAN find your way to deep, abiding calm, and new possibilities within.  


More about Lyme disease and my story: here’s a podcast with me on Lyme Ninja Radio , and an article I wrote for the East Bay Monthly.

Free, six minute meditation

Listen to a six minute, free meditation below. It just focuses on relaxation, unlike the longer meditations on the shop page, which each focus on a different physiological system.
