We know of all the wonderful effects that a mindfulness meditation practice can have on our health and the health of our patients, but mindfulness isn’t appropriate for everyone. Or maybe I should say, certain forms of mindfulness aren’t appropriate for everyone.
We recently launched a Mindfulness and Psychotherapy distance learning class with Ron Siegel, PsyD. The class is now closed for registrations, but we thank everyone who has expressed continued interest in it.
In preparation for the class, we put together a video with Ron talking about some situations where mindfulness is not advisable. We’ve been getting so many requests and emails from people who want to see it one more time, that we’ve decided to re-release the video.
In this video, we talk about:
o How the right practice at the wrong time is the wrong practice o When you should and shouldn’t use mindfulness o When inner focus techniques should never be used o How to create safety and stability with mindfulness
You can view it by clicking here. We’ll leave it up until Friday.
We’ve also reposted the case study video, “Mindfulness in the Arctic” and as well the free report on mindfulness and anxiety, “Befriending Fear and Darkness.”
If you’ve already seen the videos or the free report, please leave a comment about how this information was useful for you in your practice.
