Practicing Mindfulness

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am a Stress Reduction  and Holistic Wellness Coach and Aesthetician. I took a Mindfulness online course. I practice Mediation and have been for quite some time. Am I allowed to add mindfulness to my practice?

Hi @Kimberly! Welcome to the community, and thank you for the introduction.

While I'm not sure on the legalities of what you can and can't entitle yourself as this varies according to the place you live and the program you took, mindfulness can absolutely be woven into your practice. As an example, when you are working with clients, you might help them to settle into the present moment with a grounding meditation. This will have a powerful impact on how the coaching session unfolds.

Was the course you took a teacher training course, or was it more for personal learning and growth?

    • Thanks for another great question.  Like you I find myself being very concerned and worried these days about so many issues going on in the United States and around the world.  I would like to have more patience and perspective when it comes to working on such enormous problems. I would like to have the wisdom to look at change from the perspective of “the long arc of history” as President Obama often says.
    • I love this topic of viewing our inner and outer lives from the perspective of the ever changing four seasons.  Thank you.  Although it is a bit hard to accept, I realize that I am now living in the Autumn season of my life.  However my inner season feels like spring since I living into one of the most creative seasons of my life.  All in all I am grateful for both seasons.
    • Like you, Gillian - SPRING! 🌱 The first thing that "sprang" to mind! I feel a season of hope and possibilities unfolding inside me as I breathe new life into my business! Great question! 💟
    • For all the mindfulness and meditation teachers here, I am curious: how are you reaching people during these times? Are you still teaching in-person or are you using apps, online courses, or video conferencing? If you have any tips for how to share our work online (such as specific apps, course building websites, etc.) I'd love to learn more.
    • enhancing non-judgmental moment-to-moment awareness     Hi All!  Here is your weekly dose of "5 Mindful Musings", a brief list of what's helping me live a more mindful life. What I Am Excited About My video interview with Sharon Salzberg. We discussed how to be compassionate without burning out, how to soften our self-judgment, the healing practice of equanimity, why anger is important for creating change, and why it's ok to feel what we feel... And I give her a special surprise near the end. 🙂 Mindfulness Exercises I Just Shared Freely I just published this new article to support your mindfulness: - Will Mindfulness Help My Anxiety? A Podcast I Am Inspired By My Healing Journey After Childhood Abuse, by Tim Ferriss. For those of you wondering how mindfulness and meditation can help heal trauma, this podcast audio and list of written resources is for you. Tim shares his story of uncovering old traumatic wounds during a mindfulness retreat with Jack Kornfield at Spirit Rock Meditation Center, and how Jack helped guide him to healing. Highly recommended. Something I Am Curious About Tripp. This virtual reality app (that pairs with Oculus) claims that it will help you be more mindful "to stay healthy inside and out". I am curious to learn more, and I'm generally skeptical of introducing visual-based technology to aid our ability to sense into our actual embodied experience. Thoughts? Two Statements That I Often Repeat 1. Mindfulness is not brainfulness. The mind and the brain are not the same thing.  2. Mindfulness is not about relaxation. It's about noticing our actual moment-to-moment experience without judging it.  As always, please feel free to share your feedback in our Mindfulness Community Forums. Which musing above is your favorite? What do you want more or less of? Other suggestions? Just add a post to the forum and let me know!  Subscribe to our YouTube channel for exclusive, free mindfulness trainings.
