“Dissolving Stress” Group: Meditation, Mindfulness and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy to Dissolve Anxiety
Anxiety seems to proliferate in our era of social media, cultural disintegration, and crazy government. Clients who have issues with anxiety often have social anxiety as well. If you can muster up the courage to come to a group, I can offer you three powerful tools to dissolve anxiety: meditation, mindfulness, and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (which I call ‘Thought Busting’). Come join a group of people who are interested in learning to live life more mindfully and in the present moment. You will learn to meditate, to ‘bust thoughts’ and to get more comfortable in a group of new people (useful in your professional and personal life).
The group will run weekly for 90 minutes every other week, for a total of 12 weeks, and includes meditation instruction and practice. Our first group began in January 2018, voted to continue every two weeks, and ran for 18 months! Another group has been running since October 2018.
The next groups will start whenever I have 6 participants interested. The Cost is $40/week. Insurance sometimes will or sometimes won’t cover this…check your coverage. If it does cover this service, I will bill them for it, but expect you to pay me at each group meeting, and will file the claim so you can get reimbursed. I am willing to run as many groups as people want, on any evening Monday through Wednesday from 7 to 8:30 pm.
Half-Day and Full-Day Retreats (See “Retreats” Tab for more details).
There are many current clients and others interested in deepening their meditation practices, and asking questions about their spiritual paths. To facilitate growth, I will be offering a quarterly half-day or one-day, retreat on Sundays at the Unity Barn. This is a unique opportunity to create a temporary sangha (a collection of people looking for what’s true), and to use the group energy to go deeper in your personal meditation practice.
This is also an opportunity to uncover your true spiritual nature and real body-based personality….like a sculptor uncovering a unique shape in a block of stone. In a question and answer format (sometimes called Satsang, meaning “in the company of truth”) you and I will look at what needs to fall away in order for you to Be Yourself truly and clearly.
Maximum group size is 20, and minimum is 6. The fee is $100 for the day. The retreats will occur on Sundays from 10AM to 5PM at the Unity Barn in Doylestown, Pennsylvania. Wear comfortable clothing and bring a packed lunch and beverage.
