I am offering a new form of support and practice, called Meditative Counseling. Mostly it will be a short-term approach of about 5-6 weekly sessions, however it can run longer, if helpful. During this time, we will identify a particular area where you are having difficulty, or want to become stronger, and then create a customized bundle of meditations and mind-training tools to help you accomplish this. The work can be done in person or digitally through Skype.
Each weekly session will run for about 65-70 minutes, and involves:
a quick “check-in”.
a 20-30 minute meditation session.
a conversation about your meditation session, experiences from the last week and anything else that comes up. We will tease out insights about what is arising in your body, heart and mind, and then figure out how to work with it.
learning a new meditation technique, usually each week.
and finally a quick “wrap-up”.
I have also been finding an unexpected interest in Buddhist practice and ideas, and am happy exploring these with clients/students as well.
It is suitable for 1 or 2 people. The cost is $100 per session for one person and $150 for two. This cost includes HST. A sliding scale is possible.
To be clear this is NOT therapy or psychotherapy, however Meditative Counseling can be used in a way that is complementary to traditional therapy, however not if someone is experiencing psychosis or serious delusional states. Meditation should also be used cautiously with trauma.
