Mindfulness & Meditation

Mindfulness is being aware of your surroundings and what you’re sensing and feeling in the moment.
There are numerous studies showing the benefits of mindfulness for:

  • Reducing anxiety
  • Managing stress
  • Reducing depressive symptoms
  • Enhancing general health
  • Improving focus and learning
  • Improving sleep

Meditation is an ancient tradition that’s still widely practiced to create a sense of calm and inner harmony. Meditation is about altering consciousness, finding awareness, and achieving peace.

There are nine popular meditation types, and I integrate many of them into my practice:

  • Mindfulness meditation
  • Spiritual meditation
  • Focused meditation
  • Movement meditation
  • Mantra meditation
  • Transcendental meditation
  • Progressive relaxation
  • Loving-kindness meditation
  • Visualization meditation
