Meditation is a learned skill with practice and patience. Our breath is the anchor to the session. One learns to focus on the breath and stay detached from our thoughts.
BENEFITS OF MEDITATION ARE:
reduces stress and anxiety, blood pressure and heart rate.

helps us to learn to response to life stresses, not react.
increases compassion and caring for others and self.
decreases levels of inflammation that can pain and chronic illness in the body.
HOW IS THIS DONE: Have a place of quiet where you can sit. Sit and focus on the breath. Start practicing 5 -10 minutes a day.
Mindfulness is a lifestyle. Moment to moment awareness of thoughts, feelings, bodily sensations and surrounding environment. Developing mindful moments throughout the day helps us to be in the present. Enjoy more moments of the day. Seize the Day!
HOW DO YOU DO THAT: Take a few deep breaths and be totally involved in whatever you are doing. Enjoy that time. Eliminate thinking of the past and the future.
I can help each individual learn to meditate and practice mindfulness throughout your day. Meditation and mindfulness are life changing activity.
