Meditation

For many clients, meditation can be an appropriate complement to therapy. Scientific studies in recent years have affirmed the value of meditation in achieving emotional health.

WHAT IS MINDFULNESS MEDITATION? Mindfulness meditation (also known as Insight meditation or Vipassana) is a 2,600 year-old practice which cultivates a clear, stable and non-judgmental awareness. Mindfulness meditation is highly effective in helping bring calm and clarity to the pressures of daily life. It is also a spiritual path which gradually dissolves barriers to the full development of wisdom and compassion.
