Benefits of Meditation
Are you curious about meditation but don’t know how to begin?
Have you tried meditating on your own but felt discouraged and thought “My mind is just too busy, it’s not for me”?
You are not alone.
Rooted in ancient teachings, meditation practices offer an antidote to the constant stress and distraction of modern life. They help us to reduce stress, anxiety and reactivity, increase attention, awareness, calm and clarity, and improve mood, communication, creativity and productivity. These practices help us connect to our truest values and reach our fullest human potential.
Marcie teaches meditation practices in 1:1 sessions, weekly group classes and workshops in the following areas:
Mindfulness helps us to bring greater awareness to our moment to moment experience and to be with it with greater openness and acceptance. With practice we are able to meet the inherent challenges in life with greater ease, become more engaged and present in our lives, and find a greater sense of balance, contentment and joy.
Lovingkindness and Compassion practices, including Self-Compassion, help us to cultivate kindness and good will toward ourselves and others as well as meet our own and others’ suffering with tenderness and nurturance. They help us to stay connected to our common humanity and allow us to access our inner resources of strength and resilience.
