Why Individual Sessions?
Whether beginners or advanced, many students of meditation find that an ongoing personal relationship with a teacher is important to maintain inspiration for meditation practice and navigate the personal/interpersonal issues involved in bringing the practices of mindfulness and compassion more fully into your life. Heather offers meditation-counseling sessions to individuals in person or by phone on a 30 minute, or 1 hour-long basis.
What might meditation-counseling sessions include?
A typical meditation counseling session may include a short beginning meditation and intention setting, followed by a short check in about your meditation or daily life mindfulness practice, followed by in depth transformative work around bridging your spiritual practice and your daily life and relationships.
Common topics explored in the sessions include:
- How do I bring the tools learned in meditation into my daily life?
- How do I bring the teachings of insight meditation into a difficult relationship or life circumstance?
- How do I establish more connection in my life?
- How do I work with limiting self-judgments and core beliefs?
Sessions could also include ritual, writing, singing and movement as appropriate.
How much does it cost?
In accordance with the tradition of insight meditation, the sessions are offered on a donation basis. Heather can provide you with a suggested donation sliding scale upon request.
