Mindful : April 2016
Stefanie and Elisha Goldstein are clinical psychologists at the Center for Mindful Living in Los Angeles, specializing in mindfulness, with a focus on families and children. Elisha is author of Uncovering Happiness. Nurture patience Impatience is to anxiety as patience is to calm and ease. If you want to create mastery around patience, you need to be on the lookout for impatience THE MOUNTAIN MEDITATION is a wonderful way to give yourself the experience of balancing in the midst of the mind’s ever-changing nature. 1 Sit in a comfortable posi- tion, close your eyes, and take a few deep breaths. Allow the breaths to be an anchor to this moment. 2 Imagine yourself as a mountain, with the forest covering the mountain and all its foliage. Do your best to get in touch with this visualization. 3 Experience the differ- ent seasons, of summer, fall, winter, and spring unfolding. The fall brings beautiful colors, the winter all the snow, ice and storms, spring brings its newfound flowers, and summer brings heat and potentially fire. 4 Now ask yourself, “Has the mountain itself actually changed?” The mountain remains the same: solid, stable, and grounded. 5 In the midst of anxiety say to yourself, “Breathing in, I imagine myself as the mountain, breathing out, I am grounded and solid.” Feel the natural balance that’s there. and get curious about it. How does it manifest in the body? Can you let it be? Patience isn’t only a virtue. It’s a pathway to emotional freedom. ● AD www.MinfulnessNorthwest.org Mindfulness Teacher Training Program Certification in mindfuness teaching 9-month cohort-based teacher training September 8, 2016 - June 4, 2017 Roots of Mindfulness 7-day retreat Exploring the Buddhist roots of Mindfulness and MBSR October 15 - 22, 2016 Mindfulness Retreats and Training in the Pacific Northwest with Mindfulness Northwest Meets CFM requirements for professional development Director & Lead Instructor Rev.
