The Mind Body Connection
The Power of Meditation
Mindfulness meditation provides an opportunity to settle the mind, which promotes clarity and thus encourages insight and wisdom. Through awareness during your daily life and formal meditation, you can more easily navigate through difficult emotions, negative thinking patterns, and physical pain. With mindfulness, you create more space for whatever you find and feel. Sometimes it can be quite challenging to find your equilibrium. Thus it can help to think that you are “holding the balance.”
Mindfulness meditation and the tools offered in the classes can help you feel more ease, balance, and provide you with a sense of acceptance that things are as they are and that you are ok. You can cultivate the ability to let go or “let be” which can be quite liberating! Kindness to yourself, to others, and to the situation helps create this balance in your daily life.
“Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.”
- Viktor Frankl
Certified Mindfulness Teacher
As a physical therapist, I’ve always been fascinated by the mind-body connection. It is my own personal mindfulness practice that shifted things and brought me more access to joy in my life, despite physical and mental challenges. By bringing mindfulness into my life, I can also more easily and often tap into what I like to call “small pleasants.” I love sharing these practices with all of my students!
