Meditation and Mindfulness

Meditation, Creative Visualisations & Mindfulness Awareness Practices

 

With the many distractions and busy-ness in our lives, the practice of meditation and mindfulness may provide welcome relief from tension. Learning mind control techniques can help you to manage your reactions to stress in your day-to-day life.

 

Meditation

The word meditation, like medicine, uses the Greek prefix “med,” which means “care” or “attention.” When we meditate, we are paying attention to the care of our being.

During your meditation sessions, Maree will teach you to learn to apply care and attention to your life as an antidote to restlessness and anxiety. She will also guide you through your first meditation to identify ways in which you can improve your own mediation practice at home, or anywhere you find the need to find peace and calm during your day.

 

Mindfulness

 

Based on the ancient Buddhist philosophy where one tries to notice present thoughts, feeling and sensations without judgement or attachment to any of these, mindfulness is a modern-day way. Often referred to as “bare awareness”, mindfulness is the practice of being aware of your own thoughts without causing distress to your life because of them.

 

As with meditation, Maree helps you to recognise those thoughts which create sensations and feelings which trigger your body and thoughts in a way that does not serve your best self. From there, Maree will guide you through some mindfulness exercises to help you practice mindfulness in your everyday life.
