Meditation + MBSR

Meditation is a practice that has been around for thousands of years. In general, meditation is a period of relaxed contemplation with a goal of producing relaxation, fulfillment, and serenity. It has been used in many religious practices. Perhaps the best-known form of meditation is Buddhist meditation. Buddhism emphasizes meditation’s ability to help a person develop insight and serenity.

In therapy, meditation may be used to ease the symptoms of anxiety. State of mind affects state of body, and meditation can soothe an anxious mind and allow the body to experience health benefits. It can also be helpful for those struggling with substance abuse issues and lead to a reduction in cravings and an increase in self-awareness. Meditation has been shown to have many health benefits that improve quality of life across many aspects, and often goes hand-in-hand with the therapeutic practice of mindfulness.
