Self-compassion meditation

Self-compassion allows us to meet uncomfortable experiences (suffering) with a non-judgmental, supportive, and kind attitude.

Everybody hurts sometimes and nobody gets out alive. This short 10-min mediattion is about cultivating self-compassion in order to first meet and then sooth suffering.

Meditation on Thoughts

Sometimes when the mind appears busy and cluttered it might seem imposible to meditate. This meditation uses thoughts as a focal point so instead of fighting with the mind you can think of opening up the closet and taking a look at what is inside. In this case we are not emptying the closet rather attempting to sort through and maybe organize what at firts might seem overwhelming.

Gratitude Meditation

Grattitude meditation is about paying attention on purpose to those things in your life which you are greatful for. As we recall grattitude it allows us to cultivate an inner soothing resourse which downloads more contentment and satisfcation with the way things are. Contentment automatically shuts off the consumatory stress response that leads hypervigilence, cravings, and more impulsive behaviours.

Loving Kindness Meditation

Like the grattitude meditation, the loving-kindness meditation is about cultivating a soothing inner resource of love and support. As a result of increased stress and trauma we might become sympathetically tuned (fight-flight-freeze response) and hyper-vigilent. In this state we are more judgmental, critical, and focused on self-preservation as a survival strategy. Loving kindness fortifies the inner soothing resonse that allows us to feel more supported, safe for now, and responsive (versus reactive).

Grounding through 5 Elements and Senses

10-min mindfulness practice for grounding in the here and now. Paying attention on purpose in the moment automatically shifts us away from mind-wandering. While mind-wandering is not necessarily bad however in times of stress, information overload, or for those who struggle with anxiety and depression we can easily get stuck in worry, panic, rummination, and hoplessness. In this practice you will be directed to pay attention to specific senses and elements in your body in order to re-oritent attention to the here and now.
