This guided meditation helps you develop awareness of sensations in the body.  Anxiety and depression often involve losing contact with the body and using this meditation may help you regain a connection.  You will also develop a way of noticing physical phenomena as they arise. This meditation draws its influence from the labeling and body scan approaches developed by Shinzen Young and Richard Miller.

 

I am a licensed Counselor and Psychotherapist in Tucson, Arizona. I am a long time (22+ years) practitioner of meditation and postural yoga. I know first-hand the exploration potential of mind-body practices. I received my Bachelor's degree in Humanities and Philosophy from Shimer College and my Master's degree in Clinical Mental Health Counseling from Adam's State University. I also completed a 2 year certificate program in contemplative psychotherapy at the  Nalanda Institute.  My interests include developing and optimizing mind-body practices for my clients and helping other therapists gain a better understanding of how to use these practices in a mental health setting.  I've studied with some thoughtful and generous teachers in the fields of psychotherapy, philosophy, and contemplative practice (primarily Indo-Tibetan Buddhist Yogis).
