Meditation and Mindfulness are often used interchangeably. Rightfully so as they are both practices of awareness; however how you engage in the practices differ.
“Mindfulness is the awareness that arises when we non-judgmentally pay attention in the present moment. It cultivates access to core aspects of our own minds and bodies that our very sanity depends on,” says Jon Kabat-Zinn, from The Unexpected Power of Mindfulness Meditation. Acting with awareness in your present moment takes both practice and presistance. What I offer in this regard is guided mindfulness sessions which can be for general wellbeing and space making, or can be developed to grow on certain desired themes (e.g. self compassion, appreciation etc..)
"Meditation is both a skill and an experience — a formal exercise to cultivate awareness and compassion. By sitting with the mind, we’re training it to be more open and at ease, and we consequently discover greater calm, clarity, contentment, and compassion. In doing so, we increasingly learn to have a direct experience of the present moment." - Headspace. Similar to guided mindfulness sessions, I can offer guided meditations, allowing you to be transported to a space of stillness without having to get yourself there on your own. Meditation too, is something that needs to be practiced with persistence and non judgment.
All offers available for individuals and groups both in person and virtually.
