Meditation and Mindfulness
TAP INTO THE PRESENT MOMENT
THE BENEFITS OF MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS
Being able to bring yourself into the present moment is a phenomenal skill that helps reduce stress, anxiety, pain, and depression. Additionally, it expands your capacity to take in the good in your life as you are able to observe and breakthrough thought patterns that often focus on what is lacking. Meditation and mindfulness help reduce risk of relapse and help clients attain long-term recovery by:
HOW MEDITATION AND MINDFULNESS ARE IMPLEMENTED
In addition to morning meditations, clients receive education on the benefits of meditation and mindfulness. During these classes, they learn about the history and science of meditation and are introduced to various meditation techniques so they can find what resonates with them. Time is allotted in the evening for clients to practice meditation or reflect in another way that feels best for them.
Mindfulness is a quality that we incorporate in every activity that clients participate in – whether staying at the center, going to the gym, or adventuring around the island. We teach our clients to practice being totally attentive to the activity happening in the moment
THE END RESULT: Clients learn how to separate themselves from their thoughts and become observers of their mental patterns. By separating from negative thought patterns, clients are able to tap into what is actually happening in the present moment. This is an invaluable skill clients are able to practice anywhere, anytime, as they progress through their recovery journey.
