    Contemplative Psychotherapist













    What is Contemplative Psychotherapy?



    It is a therapeutic approach

    that utilizes contemplative practices

    to help individuals

    habituate to the experience of

    quieting the mental process, while learning to exercise the intelligence of the rational soul

    where notions of meaning, purpose, 

    connectedness, and agency reside.







    Cognitive behavioral therapy

    or talk therapy

    is helpful,


    it is limited

    to the aspects of the mind.






  • A contemplative approach invites awareness to

    naturally arise within you—


    an alertness to an intelligence

    that is greater than

    thought alone.



    Contemplative practices support the


    mind-body connection and can include


    experiences such as the following:


    mindful breathing patterns


    sound meditations


    guided imagery




    reflecting on insights


    introspective journaling and


    centering in nature.





    Learn to breathe, pause, and pay attention


    to your life mindfully,


    to identify your values,


    to harness your creativity,


    and to explore the potential and meaning


    that lies embedded within every experience.
