Description of services


Mindfulness Meditation Group:

Founded in 1979, the MBSR program is a model of stress reduction developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn at the University of Massachusetts Medical Centre.

Mindfulness refers to a quality of attention that is receptively aware and non-judgmental. It develops by cultivating presence in each moment. For example, notice, your breath as you read this word and the next…

Mindfulness based stress reduction (MBSR) is a program geared to enhance mindfulness in all aspects of your life. You may notice often you are “in your thoughts” – in the future or past, or simply “stressed-out”. This lack of presence leads to increased feelings of unease, separation from self and others – almost living life mechanically. With increased awareness, we have more options to change how we relate to ourselves and the world around us.


Conscious Living Group - MBSR II: 

This group is a continuation of the Mindfulness-Based-Stress-Reduction(MBSR) program developed by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn. 
We will elaborate on the following themes:

Success
Intimacy
Gratitude & Joy
Self-esteem
Communication & Assertiveness
Impact of our Thoughts & Feelings

Formal meditation practices from MBSR will continue. There is a requirement to continue daily practice. Two new CDs which include "Meditation on Thoughts and Feelings" and "Loving Kindness Meditation" are provided. These guided meditations will be incorporated into the weekly homework. You will be given a gratitude journal where you will be asked to record, on a daily basis, things that have brought you a feeling of gratitude. New Yoga postures and breathing techniques are introduced. In the self-reflective homework, you will focus more on your strengths, gifts, and creativity, opening to "receive your future" all the while practicing being here now!!
