Mindfulness & Meditation

For individuals, couples, families and small groups. Mindfulness is our ability to be aware of our selves and our surroundings at a deeper level. We are all aware of ourselves and our environment sometimes. Unfortunately, while this is a natural behavior, in our busy world filled with distractions many people are operating on autopilot. Mindfulness can become a more natural process and used on a daily basis.

While some use the word meditation to reflect the action of meditating, in reality meditation is a sate (within a spectrum) that one achieves from prolonged  moments of focused awareness or mindfulness. Sustained awareness brings about a meditative state or "trance state." Today we use meditation to refer to a broad set of practices that uses the mind in intentional ways. While many associate mediation with Buddhism or Hinduism, meditation is found in all cultures and can be secular or religious.  Today we use it as an umbrella term for a variety of contemplative practices. We also use the word "meditative state" to express the trance state one achieves during prolonged and focused awareness.


 The purpose of this coaching is to help you achieve a new habit through deliberate effort and to teach you techniques which can help you on your journey. Counseling sessions are typically 50 minutes or much less. 

Initial sessions for new clients include an assessment. Group sessions are a little different. 


Mindfulness and meditation practice sessions are available in combination with other services such as energy healing and metaphysical counseling.
