Guided Imagery Guided imagery is a meditative technique that appeals to the creative parts of your mind. Ultimately, the goal is to use positive symbols to create a powerful connection between your body and mind.
The body of research on mindfulness is overwhelmingly positive and ever increasing. Meditation is a major component of becoming more mindful and of developing a regular mindfulness practice. Meditating can help with concentration, patience, self-compassion, sleep, and overall stress management and well-being. This drop-in workshop (no appointment needed) includes brief discussion about mindfulness practice, a professional leading guided meditations, and some silent meditation time. All levels of experience are welcome.
