As a supplement to my therapy practice, I lead meditation groups that clients are welcome to attend. Many people find that regular meditation deepens and supports their healing and growth in therapy.
As used in eastern spiritual traditions, the term “meditation” encompasses a variety of practices that foster the opening of our awareness to the depth of the mind and heart. Research has shown that regular meditation practice reduces stress, depression, and anxiety and increases attention and self-acceptance. Regular meditation practice also cultivates a sense of inner stability and calm and fosters compassionate awareness of what is.
These meditation groups utilize practices from a number of traditions. No previous experience with meditation nor any religious belief or commitment is required to participate. All you need is a willingness to explore your own experience in the present moment.
Clients who want to explore Christian contemplative prayer practices are also welcome to participate in contemplative prayer groups and retreats that I lead.
