Meet the Therapists

 

Art Therapy

We will invite you to try using art to express yourself. Art making is a way to learn our true intentions, to process and make sense of things, and practice mindfulness. Art helps us find perspective and see things we couldn’t see before. It gives voice to parts of ourselves we don’t yet have words for and allows us to heal and know our wholeness as humans.

 

Mindfulness and meditation are ways to practice being present in the moment.  Much of the time our minds are focused on the past (what already happened and how we feel about it) or the future (what might happen and if we want it or not).

 

When we practice paying attention to what is happening instead, there are many benefits:

  • Decreased stress

  • Increased immune system functioning

  • Increased flexibility in dealing with situations of daily life

  • Increased compassion for ourselves and others

 

There are many different ways to practice including:

  • Focus on breath–noticing the sensation and movement

  • Walking meditation–conscious movement

  • Seated meditation–observing your breath and thoughts

  • Guided meditation–following along with an audio guide

 

Here is a guided meditation to try
