Mindfulness & Meditation
Mindfulness is a natural companion to Transpersonal Psychology.
Whatever Life presents, we always have a choice in how we respond.
However, it’s very difficult to recognize the choicepoint when we are rushing through our days, accustomed to reacting to external circumstances.
So often, we are hijacked by unconscious patterns, ways of being, triggers.
We don’t even notice there was another option until we regret something we’ve said or done.
Cultivating a mindfulness practice invites us to pause. To enter into the stillness of a moment. To feel what we feel so that when we do speak or act, we do so from a place of authenticity. From a place of clarity. From what is actually true for us in that moment.
In this way, mindfulness is about reclaiming your life – one breath at a time.
Establishing a meditation practice is not necessary to bring more mindfulness into your life – but it sure does help.
Coming into stillness, quieting the mind, keeping attention on the breath – meditation is fertile soil for cultivating more mindful participation in your life.
Setting aside time each day, whether it’s for 5 minutes or an hour, sets an inner foundation that can support a calmer nervous system, a quieter mind, a deeper understanding of Self, and greater moment-to-moment awareness.
