Our mindfulness meditation session serves as an aid to help clients develop the fundamental tools to heighten our human capacity for calm, comfort, and awareness. Each session is tailored to make meditation accessible for people like you and me. Often when we hear the word meditation, we imagine mystics high atop a distant mountain, chanting with closed eyes, leading us to believe that meditation is reserved for lofty seekers of enlightenment. There is much more to the power of breathing, the mechanics of breath which are translatable to us, the urbanite and suburbanite, the person who is seeking a time tested source of relaxation and stress reduction.
According to The National Institute of Health, meditation has been proven to enhance sleep, reduce anxiety, and lessen the symptoms associated with chronic pain and many forms of illness, as well as PTSD, to provide just a small list of its benefits. At the Counseling and Wellness Center of Pittsburgh, our clinicians have scoured the globe, learning from its ancient and modern healers. From indigenous peoples of the Thai jungles, the medicine men of the Peruvian Amazon, the religious masters of the Middle East.
