mindfulness meditation sunny10

As Pegasus said, it's a meditation technique called "mindfulness" which is different from other forms such as transcendental. There are a lot of articles, books, tapes, etc., but it does take a lot of practice. My therapist is all about mindfulness -- it eludes someone like me, who lives in her head and thinks a lot. I always want to make things more complicated than they are. But it helps to try, and to not judge your thoughts as good or bad and to try not to be hard on yourself if you don't succeed right away. I can't imagine anyone does master it quickly -- it's very different than how our western brain works. People, like my T, who have mastered it says it makes a profound difference. It's not a quick fix, unfortunately. Maybe the two of you could try it together, let her model it for you perhaps?
