Mindfulness & Meditation

Below is a list of Exercises and Practices to Start at Home Cultivate Self-Awareness and Mindfulness “Self-awareness is the ability to take an honest look at your life without any attachment to it being right or wrong, good or bad “ -- Debbie Ford Take a quiet moment and pay attention to your emotions.

LOVING KINDNESS OR METTA MEDITATION

By: Dr. Scott Greenapple With all the turmoil, anger frustration, and general upheaval in the country and world right now, I thought this would be the perfect time to guide you through a meditation to quiet the mind and open the heart. https://vimeo.com/426720724 Metta or Loving Kindness Meditation is a method of developing compassion.  More information is sent from the heart to the brain than from the brain to the heart.

Qi Gong & Self Massage

QI GONG: Enhance Your Immune System, Decrease Your Stress With this Meditation with Movement https://vimeo.com/418914789 Qi - Gong is an eastern practice of balancing the body, breath and the mind with flowing movements and meditation. "Qi" means "Energy", "Gong" means "To Work".  So, literally we are working with the body's energy to balance and harmonize, allowing the body's natural capacity to turn on the healer within. In this short video we are using a form of massage or tapping to align the three Dan Tiens or what are known as "Elixir Fields".  Aligning these three elixir fields or reservoirs of energy is a great way to begin any Qi Gong or Tai Chi practice.  It is also a wonderful ritual to start and end the day on its own.   There...
