    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,

    but

    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 include :

     

    ​breath or sound meditations

     

    guided imagery meditations

     

    mindfulness

     

    reflecting on insights

     

    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.
