There are several kinds of meditation you can practice from home to ease stressful times. I am going to share one with you today that is easy to get started if you need a quick fix for exhaustion and stress or if you want to balance your energy to rest during a busy or difficult time. If you’re interested in personal coaching online, feel free to contact me for personalized coaching sessions where we address your specific needs and goals and spend time helping you create your own self-care routine and working through whichever styles of meditation may work best for you. If you would like to learn more about the styles of meditation that I teach, you can find more information and reading resources at http://www.greatlakeshealingarts.com where you can also contact me for class information.
It’s been a stressful month. From political stress just beginning to amp up for likely one of the most contentious elections the United States has ever seen to the outbreak of coronavirus COVID-19, you can feel it on the street and see the growing panic on social media. No, coronavirus is not as serious a pathogen as something like ebola, but it is a concern to vulnerable elderly and immunocompromised populations, and a major hit measuring in the trillions of dollars for the stock market due to the effects of a novel virus hitting entire populations with no immunity all at once.
It’s time for a gratitude timeout. As part of my work exploring ways to coach individuals in the healing, creative, and business fields in creative thinking tools and centering meditations through Great Lakes Healing Arts, I’ve been piloting various times and locations for meditation classes and intuitive arts circles. These classes teach novel meditation techniques pulled from the martial arts and shamanic and therapeutic traditions for connecting with the intuition for relaxation, improved health, and creative inspiration. It’s perfect both for healing and guiding life path decisions, and for high-level creative thinking in business or the arts. I should have known by now that good friend and co-host of my first intuitive arts circle in Brighton, Michigan, Heather Heffley of The Awakened Soul, herself a gifted Reiki master and intuitive, wouldn’t steer me wrong when we collaborated to test a class north of Ann Arbor.
