What happens in my first private session?
We will discuss your reason for coming to learn or continue mindfulness meditation in order to create a personalized practice that suits your individual needs such as stress, physical pain, or attention management. I will then educate you about mindfulness meditation as there are a lot of myths regarding what it is and isn’t. Next, I will guide you through a meditation and you will give me feedback on your experience. We will meditate again to practice and talk about how you can do it on your own. Anyone can meditate, but finding a way to make it your own practice will make you more successful. This is why creating a personalized meditation practice that can be replicated on your own is key. In subsequent sessions, I will offer to record the guided meditations we do on your phone or iPad to help you continue and deepen your meditation practice.
How many sessions will I need to get started and how often do you recommend coming?
The recommended number of sessions is based on each client and what he or she is looking to accomplish. Clients benefit most when they commit to 3-4 sessions. The goals we define together are the foundation for our future plan. Many clients find value from coming weekly and have done so for years.
