Healing Through Meditation
Mindfulness meditation also known as insight meditation is a very powerful and supportive practice in helping us to face difficulty in our lives It gives us a tool that allows us to be actively involved in our own healing process. In this practice, you learn how to cultivate awareness of your body and mind, allowing you to be more connected with your own experience. In this process, you can discover your own often hidden capacity to face life's challenges. Mindfulness practice helps you uncover a source of self-understanding and compassion that lies naturally within you. With this practice, we discover how to relax into life, whatever it brings, from a place of steadiness rather than struggle.
