MEDITATION MENTORING IS HELPFUL FOR:

 

  • Journeying inward with reflective support

  • Improving concentration, memory, & attention

Meditation Mentoring consists of instruction in mindfulness, or Insight (Vipassana) meditation. Reoccurring sessions support you in beginning or deepening a meditation practice while being supported in integrating mindfulness into daily life. Insight meditation combines the development of concentration and mindfulness which develop clarity of awareness alongside heart practices to stabilize the mind and heart. Insight meditation is a complete path for the alleviation of stress and suffering, based on the wisdom teachings of the Buddha.

For interested practitioners, meditation mentoring may include guidance in the integration of practice and Buddhist study.
