What is Involved in a Mindfulness Break™ Session?

By now, you may be wondering what is Involved in a Mindfulness Break™ session.

Whether you sign up for a Mindfulness Break session in your home or workplace, my office, or through Skype / Whatsap / Facetime, you will have the same type of  experience that hundreds of people have already had with my training sessions.

You will begin in a comfortable position with your eyes closed by stretching and relaxing all the large muscles of your body including your arms, legs, feet and toes, back and neck. This is followed by stretching and relaxing the muscles in your chest by taking six complete deep breaths all the way down into your abdomen.

I will then invite you to withdraw yourself into yourself and become aware of your body. You will accomplish this by opening you senses – taste inside your mouth, smell, and sound. Since your eyes will be closed, vision will be closed, but inner vision – insight – will be open. You will explore body sensations in your feet and hands, legs and arms, chest and back, shoulders and neck, and head and face.

You will be invited to be aware of no other spaces but this space and no other times but this time. You will be here, now. Be here now.

All of the above prepare you to imagine yourself in a relaxing space of your choice, such as a beach, a mountain, a meadow, a stream, or a forest. This picture is one that I took while it was still possible to descend 102 steps down to China Beach in Point Lobos State Reserve just south of Carmel, California. This is the place I imagine the most when I take a Mindfulness Break!

The next phase is to what is called a “body scan.” You will be guided to be aware and relax each part of your body from the top of your head to the tips of you toes and from the tips of your toes to the top of your head. You will be completely and deeply relaxed!

To help you go even deeper, I will count you down from 10 to 1. With each descending number, you will relax even deep than before.

The next part of the Mindfulness Break is looking deeply or insight, and it varies from person to person and from time to time. For example, the first time you experience a Mindfulness Break, you will simply be allowed to feel what it feels like to be completely and deeply relaxed in a quiet space for what may seem like a long period of time. This will be a time for you to look deeply into your innermost self and be with life, just as it is. If you have additional sessions, we can work on goals, stress,, sleep, symptoms, weight, and emotions like anger and resentment, whatever is present for you at the time of the session.

We will conclude with instructions on how to accomplish a Mindfulness Break on you own, completing the session, and answering any questions you after bringing you out of your deep state of relaxation.
