MIndfulness, Guided Imagery and Individual Meditation Sessions and Training

MIndfulness is one of the new buzz words being heard in the past few years, but what does it mean?

To some, it is a welcome escape from the daily stressors of modern living.  To others, it is a spiritual experience.  To others still,it may mean relief from chronic pain, sleepless nights, or a reduction in anxiety.

Basically, mindfulness is an exercise in living in the moment while quieting the noise of self talk, anxiety, worry, and other intrusions, to connect with Source and the authentic self.

In Eastern cultures, it is a part of one's daily life to practice mindfulness, either through prayer or meditation.

In Western cultures, there is often a lack of value placed on the art of living in the moment, of becomingai "in touch" with oneself and using the mind to carve out a peaceful retreat in the world, no matter where one may live.

Guided imagery and mindfulness can be used to manage chronic pain, reduce wodrry and anxiety, increase self esteem, reduce physical manifestations caused by stress, aid in end of life issues.

Guided Imagery and mindfulness practices, when used correctly, can also support traditional healing modalities such as surgery, physiotherapy and occupational therapy, speech therapy and services offered by other health care professionals.
