Sometimes it can feel as though we get stuck in our minds. Maybe we feel stuck at our jobs, so we stress out about it, or perhaps we just feel tension in our bodies but don’t know why. For all this and much more, mindfulness and meditation can help a great deal. And with guided meditation, we will find it much easier to get out of our minds and get back into the world around us. It is proven to work, and we’re happy to provide guided meditation in San Francisco CA right here at B. Slim Spa.
What is the purpose of meditation?
Actually, one of the ideas behind meditation is that people are always seeking purpose and trying to “get somewhere.” This can cause or contribute to constant stress, anxiety, mindless behavior, and possibly even some mental health disorders. Just as a vacation can be rejuvenating for many people, meditation can be too. It gives us a mental break from thinking about work, chores, family issues, and other matters that can be exhausting and stressful for the mind. It is also proven to work.
More recently than not, meditation has become a component of standard practice in mental therapy and even medical treatment. We’re happy to be able to provide guided meditation for you here at B. Slim Spa.
What is guided meditation?
It’s a type of meditation that’s led by a teacher, generally in-person. With traditional meditation by oneself, a person relaxes the body and the mind, trying to focus on their state of mind and the state of their environment. For example, a person meditating might focus on letting their thoughts simply come and go, without acknowledging them, or a person might focus on breathing or nearby sounds. This can be surprisingly difficult for people, so many of them opt for guided meditation.
In guided meditation, a teacher will help the patient focus their attention and learn to let intrusive thoughts pass more easily. The teacher will also help the patient better understand how the mind behaves during meditation and why it’s always coming up with thought after thought. There are many different approaches and techniques with meditation, so the teacher will teach these to the patients and tell them how to integrate the techniques into their everyday lives.
